BOOK REVIEW: What Is Your Life's Work (#6)

By 800-CEO-READ, published June 9, 2005, at 8:38 PM in News & Opinion

Review of what is your life's work: In short, I was disappointed. The book has its merits, but does not live up to the title or the text on its cover. The title is very catchy and will certainly help sell some books, but I do not think accurately reflects the majority of the content.
