Book Review - Rules For Renegades by Christine Comaford-Lynch

Finally - an author who uses "rock" as a verb as much as me!

That said, this is definitely one of the strangest business books I've read in a long time - and this is the genre I read about 95% of the time. About half way through the book I was saying to my friends "can you believe she's writing about sleeping with Bill Gates in this book?" - but you know what, I was talking about it, I was creating buzz for the book and I certainly couldn't put it down. I don't know if you'd describe the author Christine as likeable, nor would I say she's trying to be: she's flawed, but she knows it (and aren't we all), she's a character (wait a minute, she's a monk, a geisha, a burnout, a tech-head, an investor, an entrepreneur - make that she's multiple characters), but by the end of the book I really connected with the message that she was trying to put out. Interesting and slightly shocking reading, definitely not predictable.

Hi Kirsty, have you read "It's not how good you are, it's how good you want to be." by Paul Arden?

I picked it up today and can honestly say that it is the best/cheapest 'self help' book I have ever read. If you haven't read it already, I would highly recommend it.

Peter, I think I have a copy of that, as yet unread on the bookshelf! Will look into it. K
