If you are looking for a gift-book on the subject of success despite circumstances, summarizing a number of better resources, then Up, Down or Sideways was written by Mark Sanborn just for you. If you actually want to delve deep into the subject, or need a specific method to follow, please see the list of resources at the end of this review, or your local library. Needless to say, I was disappointed by this book’s promising title, given the economy and my own drama. Everyone could use a little pick-me-up these days, but Mark would rather assimilate the concepts from a host of talented authors than come up with his own ideas. From the section titles, “See”, “Think,” and “Do” you can gather the depth to which Sanborn digs. About a quarter inch.
As always, this review thanks Tyndale House Publishers, for the advance copy in return for my opinions expressed here.
