Book Review Tuesday: Chris Widener’s The Art of Influence

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

I picked up Chris Widener’s The Art of Influence in the Atlanta airport this week.  I like Chris’s books because they are short, fun to read, and always packed with practical insights to live a more successful life.  Chris is also an excellent speaker.  As I listened to the CD in this month’s Success magazine, I heard the news that Chris is running for the US Senate.  I wish him the best in that race and hope he hangs on to his values when he gets into the political arena at that level!

In The Art of Influence, Chris once again weaves an enjoyable, fast-moving story.  This time, he takes us through four principles of influence.

Four Golden Rules of Influence:

Live a life of Undivided Integrity

Always demonstrate a Positive Attitude

Consider other people’s interests as more important than your own

Don’t settle for anything less than Excellence

I highly recommend this quick read.
