Rock Bottom to Rock Star: Lessons from the Business School of Hard Knocks by Ryan Blair
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read Ryan Blair's original book, Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain a while back and enjoyed it, so picked up his latest, Rock Bottom to Rock Star. It did not disappoint.
In his second book, Ryan teaches us all what he's learned through trial and error, so that we can all become "rock stars" in our own lives and careers. Each chapter is a different tip, told in his very readable and down-to-earth tone and with anecdotes showing either how he learned the tip and/or applied it. And although some of the lessons are more obvious than others, they're all valuable. Tips include knowing your superpower, working backwards, funding first, what weakens strengthens you, wrong type of success, and many others.
A quick enjoyable read that I'd recommend for anyone interested in learning what it takes to become a business "rock star."
