First Book: Gretchin Rubin’s “The Four Tendencies.”
What’s it About: why can some people get everything done, some people some stuff and others almost nothing despite being good people?
Would I Recommend It: Completely, even though Gretchin Rubin toots her own horn as an upholder a lot, this book explains so much of humanity to me. Why would people go to war/rebel when the laws protect the average person? Why is my husband always saying he is going to the gym this week, but not going? Why does my sister ask 10 questions if you ask her to do something simple? Why do I always complete my new year’s resolution when other people find it hard? Why do I push myself too hard like a leased donkey?
For Whom Would I Recommend It: If you like learning about managing others effectively or breaking down humanity into 4 types of ninja turtles (secretly or openly) this book is for you.
