Taking Stock - Between the covers.

PwC marketing man John Timperley’s book Barefoot on Broken Glass is a bid to convince the more passive businessman that what he thought was impossible is, in fact, possible.

Chanting a mantra of five secrets to personal success Timperley divulges secret number one – ‘change to survive and thrive’. Illuminating. Number two’s a bit more interesting – ‘release your potential’. Here Timperley implores us to read twice as fast and develop a ‘mega memory’.

But most disturbing is his physiological call to strengthen our ‘do it’ muscles.

Like most self-help books Timperley’s is full of gimmicks which rest haphazardly on some kernal of truth, which is no small achievement.
