Publisher's Summary

Common Sense Wisdom is a short book with a big message about life and the important transitions, challenges, and changes planned or unplanned that we all must face from time to time. It is at moments like these that some common sense wisdom can help us understand what is happening or should happen, why it's happening or why it should, how we should respond to it or initiate it, and how we can best apply the insights and lessons from those who have been there and done that to our own lives.
Drawing upon his own life experiences and more than 30 years as an advisor and coach to executives, government officials, and people from all walks of life from Asia, to Europe, and the United States, Pepper shares the insights from these people in a way that will cause you to think about your life and career as never before.
Common Sense Wisdom blends, in a unique way, quotes from ancient philosophers to modern-day business executives, sports figures, and thought leaders from Buddha to Baltasar Gracian and Goethe, to Winston Churchill, Mary Pickford, Oscar Wilde, Wayne Gretzky, and Margaret Thatcher to Walt Disney and Vaclav Havel, and applies them to life in the 21st century, a time when act or be acted upon takes on a whole new meaning about one's life.
The goal of Common Sense Wisdom is to give listeners the tools, understanding, and motivation to become their own career or life coaches and to lead themselves, and those around them, through life's challenges, setbacks, and successes. Common Sense Wisdom offers critical insights into life that will help people find their own true north as they chart the course for their own journeys.

Truly indispensable self-leadership coaching!

Would you consider the audio edition of Common Sense Wisdom to be better than the print version?

“Must own” dynamics are in both the audio and printed versions of this book. Pepper’s narration permeated with tone importance, though the printed copy accurately became my pocket reference. We all profess to have common sense, however after experiencing the aptly named, Common Sense Wisdom, new light was given to generate essential self-leadership refinement for success.

What other book might you compare Common Sense Wisdom to and why?

No are no other comparisons. This powerful, easy to read, thought and action provoking little book provides simplistic, effective life changing guidance and wisdom.

Common Sense Wisdom is not just a book…it is a transforming experience for your life and career.
