This is essential listening for small business owners or those considering making that leap in the next few years.
It discusses the idea of using the principle of focussing your attention on what is important, namely profit, rather than the traditional accounting system which focusses on revenue and expenses meaning for many businesses profit is an afterthought that never really materialises.
This past week I have been testing out an app called Blinkist. A few people have recommended it to me as it might give access to lots of books for minimal cost or help to save on time for some people.
As alluded to in my last review, this week I have been listening to the audiobook version of "Bounce" by Matthew Syed.
This is the preceding book to Black Box Thinking which I thought was so profound that it should be essential reading for all dentists.
As I have been reading and listening to books ferociously for the past 6 months, I have got to the point when I am choosing books for quite deliberate reasons. That may be because I found a certain topic interesting so choose a future book to delve into it more, or it may be that I am choosing to consume more books by specific authors. Today I am reviewing Homo Deus, the follow up book to Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari which I found fascinating and next week I will be reviewing Bounce which was the preceding book to Black Box thinking by Matthew Syed. Both of those former books featured heavily in my top ten book recommendations from the first half of this year (http://www.drchrisharper.co.uk/blog/my-10-favourite-books-of-2017-part-1) so I was interested to see how much I would like other works by these authors.
