As much as I love talking, writing, and sharing my thoughts about books, there are times when I read and finished a book without doing a full review. Why? Well, sometimes they are more professional or work-related reads, sometimes I’m not sure what I want to say about them, or I simply choose not to! Here’s a look at what I’ve finished recently that I didn’t feature here:
Into the Forest: The Secret Language of Trees, by Susan Hitchcock–Filled with stunningly captivating photographs, as well as interesting tidbits about one of my favorite things in nature: trees.
Talk Less, Say More: 3 Habits to Influence Others and Make Things Happen, by Connie Dieken–This was a work read with my fellow leadership team members. A quick and easy read. Somewhat oversimplified, but some great tips, too.
Making Numbers Count: The Art and Science of Communicating Numbers, by Chip Heath and Karla Starr–Sounds like it would be dry, dull, and boring, doesn’t it? But it isn’t! I was really fascinated by this slim volume and would like to get a copy for my professional reference library.
Walking Milwaukee: 31 Tours of Brew City’s Neighborhoods, Landmarks, and Entertainment Districts, by Royal Brevvaxling and Molly Snyder–I’m a born and raised Milwaukeean, but I had friends from out of town come to visit just the other week. This book was a fun refresh of what Milwaukee has to offer, and it allowed me to be a tourist in my hometown.
