  1. In between planes I picked up and read the jacket of “Boom” and didn’t purchase. Any review or comments for “Boom”?

  2. Hi Geri – Are you referring to Tom Brokaw’s Boom! or Boom! 7 Choices for Blowing the Doors off Business-As-Usual by Kevin Freiberg and Jackie Freiberg? We haven’t covered the Freibergs’ Boom on the book blog but you sparked my curiosity, particularly about what those 7 choices could be.

    A news release gave it away so there’s probably no need for a spoiler alert for those who haven’t read the book yet:
    Choice 1: Be a player
    Choice 2: Be accountable
    Choice 3: Choose service over self-interest
    Choice 4: Focus forward
    Choice 5: Play to your genius
    Choice 6: Get it done
    Choice 7: Risk more – gain more
    This sounds like it could be a good read. Has anyone read it?

    We’ll be featuring Edward Segal’s “Profit by Publicity” next week on the blog, including tips on how you can generate publicity for your business.
