Life Is Tremendous

Life Is Tremendous - Charlie "Tremendous" Jones I chose this book for the 2012 reading challenge because it was short and it took about an hour of my time. I'm not really into self help books but Charlie 'Tremendous' Jones decided if he was going to help his 14 year old son that he needed to come up with a plan . He told his son he would give him 10 dollars for every book he read with a full report of that book and he'd put the 10 dollars toward the boy's car fund. It turns out the first book he gave to his son was 'How To Win Friends and Influence People' by Dale Carnegie. There is a list of book recommendations at the back of the book.One only reads well when one reads with some quite personal goal in mind . - Paul Valery
