    product description

    People tend to order their lives according to “conventional wisdom,” a generally accepted set of principles that may include centuries-old folk sayings or that may have arisen from contemporary experience. These sayings and beliefs have become so ingrained in the public mind that they are often referred to as “common sense.”

    In both your business and your personal life, following conventional wisdom is usually the “safe” approach. But the people who make a remarkable difference in the world are typically those who examine conventional wisdom with a critical eye, using “uncommon sense.”

    Good Read
    This is a nice review reminding everyone to think about topics rather than do what you always do.

          Uncommon Sense
          OK book. As a long-time reader of leadership books, this puts a nice twist on old, familiar common sense statements. I've done leadership book summaries for years so am familiar with a lot of the content Nido uses. Please continue to publish new content and look for ways to repackage the old standbys. Appreciate having you send the second Uncommon Sense book to share. Keep up the excellent work. ~ Fred Hoke
