I received a copy of this book to review and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. In the book George Foreman and Ken Abraham set out George’s main principles of business (and life!) and give his own unique perspective on how to get on in the world and be successful. Written in an accessible and charming way I was entertained throughout. There are plenty of stories and anecdotes in amongst the ideas and advice given, and this keeps the book gliding along at a really nice pace, without ever getting ‘dry’.
There is lots to enjoy in this book, but what I liked the most was the encouraging way it put forward its ideas – there is a real sense of positivity in this book and George’s “can do” attitude leaps off the page. I also enjoyed the fact that George never seems to give up or rest on his laurels. At the end of each chapter there are questions to ask yourself to spur you on to further success, give back, and grow.
There are many lessons to be learned from this book and plenty of ideas which we can all apply to our own lives. I have long been a fan of George’s boxing and his grills…now it turns out I appreciate his writing too!
