The Business Wisdom of Steve Jobs by Alan Ken Thomas

The Business Wisdom of Steve Jobs: 250 Quotes from the Innovator Who Changed the World

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This is a book of quotes just like it says it is. I expected that since this is just a book of quotes that they would be inspirational or moving quotes, not boring and somewhat meaningless quotes. Disappointing book, I have read better quotes from Steve Jobs here on Goodreads.

Lunch with Buddha by Roland Merullo

Last year I reviewed a book called Breakfast with Buddha by Roland Merullo. If you remember the review you will know that I had high praise for the novel and recommended to many readers. Well this week I was contacted by PFP Publishing letting me know that Merullo has a sequel to the book set to come out November 13, 2012 it will be entitled Lunch with Buddha. This reader of course looks forward to the release of the novel as I am sure some other fans of Breakfast with Buddha out there are looking forward to it as well. Until the release date there are some places you can go to find out more about the book. Here are some links you might want to check out...

Burpee BOOM Challenge

Let's face it Burpees are hard, but they will kick your butt so when someone out there challenges you to do a bunch of them over a month it is hard not to accept that challenge. Mindy over at Road Runner Girl has issued a challenge to do 700 Burpee's in a month. I have accepted that challenge (gulp). Here are the details of the challenge:

  • The challenge will last for 4 weeks....from August 6 - September 3. 
  • Week 1 your goal is to do 100 burpees that week.  
  • Week 2...150 burpees.  
  • Week 3...200 burpees.  
  • Week 4...250 burpees.  That's brings your total to 700 burpees in 4 weeks!  

If you do not know how to do a Burpee here is a  video from You Tube that show you how it is done... (Note: you have the option of doing the push-up before jumping back up)

At the end of the month you need to send Mindy your calendar if you want a chance to win the super cool prizes should has put forth. Here is the calendar, which is nifty to keep track on...
