BOOK REVIEW: Up, Down, or Sideways by Mark Sanborn

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.

Save your cash and your time, buy a classic 7Habits of Highly Effective People, or the highly enjoyable and insightful Little Red Book of Wisdom, which I recently reviewed.

As always, this review thanks Tyndale House Publishers, for the advance copy in return for my opinions expressed here.
