Book Review- The Encore Effect.

I first heard of Mark Sanborn one day as I was listening to Dave Ramsey on the radio. He was talking about Mark's book, "The Fred Factor." The book gave examples of ordinary people performing ordinary jobs in an extraordinary way.

The next time I heard about Mark was when I attended a Maximum Impact simulcast, when he had introduced his next best seller called "You Don't Need a Title to be a Leader." I was impressed by what I heard. A short time later, I got an audio download of "The Fred Factor." I lost count of how many times I listened to Mark's reading of the book. I was sad when that mp3 player bit the dust.

In January, I recommended "The Fred Factor" to those who read my blog. Imagine my surprise when Mark thanked me in my comment section. We have exchanged emails a few times since, and he even sent me a book by another author. Mark practices what he teaches.

The latest book by Mark Sanborn is called "The Encore Effect." In this book a plan is layed out for you to leave those you serve wanting more. You see that practice does make perfect, how to hone your skills to do the best job possible. In these days of uncertainty, it is vital that you do the job you have to the best of your abilities. This will help prepare you for what could come up in the future.

"The Encore Effect" explains how passion in what you do will go a long way in what you do, be it in your work, or your hobbies. You will read how to cultivate passion.

Whether you want to improve your performance in your work, your studies, or even your worship, it would worth your while to buy a copy of "The Encore Effect." better yet, buy two and give one as a present, or donate it to your local library(right Daisy?)

Another thing I almost forgot to write about Mark Sanborn, and this should appeal to my Buckeye blogger friends: Mark is originally from Ohio and is a graduate of The Ohio State University. He's even been through Rittman on occasion. I don't know if he's ever eaten at Milich's Village Inn, in Barberton though. Melanie would like the fact that he's a Starbucks kind of guy and currently resides in Colorado.

This sounds like a great book - and perfect for me as I just started the log home business. Thank you for sharing!

I will be looking into these.
These seem to be more of my husbands type of reads...the kind he really likes and devours.
I will look into the library and see what we have here. I vowed a year ago not to buy new books, only borrow....my new "green" promise.
Take care,

Thanks for the review, Wixy. This sounds like an interesting read. And, of course, buy two and donate one to the library! I'm sure other libraries would appreciate it as much as mine would. :D
