Don't buy unless you are a newbie to self help

What did you like best about HBR's 10 Must Reads on Managing Yourself? What did you like least?

Not much, very disappointed. This is clearly aimed at college students.

What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

He is a hardcore christain and I just can't relate to it. His example of not violating priciples by not playing basket ball on the sabbath is simply laughable. If I was on his team I would have boxed his ears.

Which scene was your favorite?

If I were 20 I would have liked this.

What did you take away from HBR's 10 Must Reads on Managing Yourself that you can apply to your work?

That I should never buy books written by organizations, or hardcore christains.

Any additional comments?

The most basic of self help books. I couldn't get an hour into it without writing this review and trying to return the book. Newbies only.
