November - Management for the Rest of Us

And the survey says….

I’m feeling good about last month’s heads-up to the Get Abstract business books summaries – here’s why…

  • 87% of you would like to read more business or personal development books.
  • 71% don’t have time, 23% don’t know what’s current and 18% find it too expensive.

Get Abstract’s 5 page business books summaries solve those problems fast – read my review here (which tells you how to get the free summaries :o).

This month I’m curious to know about your Personal Development Planning habits, so please take this tiny 2 question survey to tell me more.

Warm Regards
