I do not get to read as much as I want because I get distracted a lot by either work, the phone or laptop. The introduction of audio and video books made it easier for me to gather knowledge from different books and also get to understand how different others think and perceive things.
I realized since primary school if a book did not capture my mind I would end up not finishing to read it. However, the ones that were interesting to me were either due for returning to the library or the owner wanted the book back before I finished reading. Either way regardless of whether a book interested me or not chances were high i would not finish it.
The other day I got a book ‘ Fairy Tales of Business’ by Dr Hooria Chishti (MBIS, M.Phil, Ph.D) a lady termed as one of the most versatile business strategist in Africa and has delivered to discerning clients across Europe, Australia and Africa. Unlike other books, it was small in terms of pages. It had 65 pages only. Dr Hooria used phrases that will get any Business Man/Woman excited and eager to read. She decribed the book as ‘The good, the bad and the ugly of the business world with vital lessons to learn etched in fairy tales’ She also said the book is a compilation of Bedtime stories and Nursery Rhymes for Business Men and Women’
What goes through your mind when you read of titles such as Cinderella? Snow white? The three little pigs? Hansel and Gretel? Fairy tales stories we have all come across either directly or indirectly. Well Dr Hooria has used the above title and much more to teach you a valuable lesson in business, lessons you may not get in any class but only through experience. I say experience is the best teacher but that doesn’t mean you have to go through an experience to learn from it. Someone sharing theirs is enough. The fairy tales of business is a book that brings out lessons many take for granted. It is through the 13 stories and 2 Nursery Rhymes that the eyes of a ‘blind’ business person will open for he will learn from the characters in every story. I am sure when you get to read the book you will be able to fully relate to a character in a story. More like a copy paste of you. It is a book every established, struggling, upcoming and soon to be business person should read for it makes the business journey easy for you regardless of the point you are in.
The book is short in terms of pages and stories, uses simple understandable English, fun to read and proves inner self to change wrongs ways or keep doing what one does. It will be a source of motivation for many
Apart from a few editorial errors (which you may not notice) were noted and corrected. The book is a must read. You can read more about the book, the author, contact the author, read a sample story and buy the book or CD from the website. While you are at it, like their facebook page and get to be among the first to know of what the Fairy Tales team has in store for you.
