REVIEW: The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon

The Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy
My Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
"In this best selling business fable, The Energy Bus, takes listeners on an enlightening and inspiring ride that reveals 10 secrets for approaching life and work with the kind of positive, forward thinking that leads to true accomplishment - at work and at home."

I really enjoyed this book. A lot of the beginning stuff I already knew—and for the most part, already practice—in my own life and (hopefully) my business dealings as well. But even throughout this part that was a bit of a review, the surrounding story was highly engaging and entertaining, allowing me to better retain some of the "rules of the bus".

Some of the later rules—a little over halfway through—progressed into newer territory for me. I enjoyed expanding my brain, and was really drawn in to the way the story was told. Maybe it's because I listened to it in audiobook, I don't know, but Jon Gordon was really good with the different voices of the various characters. I had such a vivid image of Joy in my head as a big, beautiful black woman with a smile from ear to ear every time he read her lines!

I'd definitely recommend this for leaders and business builders who want to motivate and encourage their team.
