 Great book! I have been a fan of Robert Hook’s blog for four years and couldn’t wait to get his ebook. He is in the hotel business of the area where he deals with customers and their baggage daily. I found the cover perfect for what he wrote about. If you are in the customer service related business you’ll love the boldness of his writing and the honesty. I kept saying that is so so true! I have been in the customer service industry myself and this was a good book, funny and to the point in areas where others would never tell. Thank you for the gift of your writing Robert! Looking forward to more of your books. © 2014 Jackie Paulson

Quotes:

  1. “The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I’d hoped to give you forever”
  2.  “And when her lips met mine, I knew that I could live to be a hundred and visit every country in the world, but nothing would ever compare to that single moment when I first kissed the girl of my dreams and knew that my love would last forever.”
  3.  “If you simply ignored the feeling, you would never know what might happen, and in many ways that was worse than finding out in the first place. Because if you were wrong, you could go forward in your life without ever looking back over your shoulder and wondering what might have been.”
  4. “Every time I read to her, it was like I was courting her, because sometimes, just sometimes, she would fall in love with me again, just like she had a long time ago. And that’s the most wonderful feeling in the world. How many people are ever given that chance? To have someone you love fall in love with you over and over?”
  5. “If pinpointing God’s presence were really that simple, then he supposed the beaches would be more crowded in the mornings. They would be filled with people on their own quests, instead of people jogging or walking their dogs or fishing in the surf.”

Book Review: The Existential Millennial Crisis

The Existential Millennial Crisis

“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration.” Nikola Tesla

This book will take you on a journey and shake your fundamental understandings of the Universe and have you contemplating your existence.  The author wrote this book for the “too long didn’t read” generation.  Also known as ADD or MTV generation.

The author went on a quest to find truth and question authority.  He had an experience growing up in Ivey league schools where he tested things on his own, for example what happened when he’s swallow air in choir class?  Eventually one day he was sitting on the ground and basically “let loose his farts.”  That’s what happens!  The school did not find it funny and labeled him as a sociopath for farting.  Imagine being fifteen and being labeled!  Basically, being rejected he went on a search for answers to questions he had, but also did things with people whom did not judge him, for example he hung around druggies and the odd people of society.  Ya know the druggies accepted him, faults and all!  Go figure.

Paul’s big accomplishment was winning the state chess championship in third grade.  He loved the praise when adults read about it in the local newspaper.

Did not have many friends in elementary school, middle or high school.   Paul was introverted with a dry sense of humor but anyone loved to laugh along with him.  He graduated and went on to get a BS Degree in Accounting.  He drank and did drugs.

After doing accounting for a while he got bored, developed drinking problem, survived a near fatal suicide attempt and was forced into treatment which lead to writing this book.

What Paul does is explores the truth, and he questions the way we think about things, try to be funny and tell his story.  If you want to get to the bottom of being an individual, keep reading.  The book is divided into three parts: the religion part, truths, and Paul’s story.

Introduction

If someone could wave a magic wand and suddenly change something about your chosen profession or business, what one thing would you have them change?

Would you have them provide you with an easier way to contact more, better-qualified prospects? And would you want those prospects as well as your current customers to view you as even more of a professional, or maybe even an “expert” in your field?

You may be good now, but how would you like to be even better at making more effective, more persuasive presentations? Perhaps you would like to be more effective at closing sales or handling objections. Or, is repeat business more important to you?

What if your current customers felt that you were the only person or the only business who understood and could effectively serve their specialized, unique and individual needs?

Or, how about referrals? Take the best customer you have right now. How would you like to have more contacts just like them than you could possibly handle? What one thing would you change to make you a better, happier, and more productive businessperson?

In the chapters to follow, we’ll be discussing not only these areas, but other factors that are critical for you to realize real business success. Throughout the pages of this manual we’ll explore some of the most effective ideas and field-proven methods and techniques that you can begin to put to use immediately to help you increase your sales, improve your business, overcome some of your most difficult problems and challenges, gain extra income, have more free time, and find a renewed enjoyment from your chosen business.
