Mindfire: Big Ideas for Curious Minds (review)


Mindfire: Big Ideas for Curious Minds (review)

I’ve read at least one book by Scott Berkun before, Confessions of a Public Speaker, and I liked it so much I decided to spring for his latest.  Some other things made me want to read this book:

  • It’s self-published
  • Scott is trying to promote the book without publishing house support
  • It’s a collection of previously published essays on a variety of topics

And I’m glad I did! I believe the book is organized to take you from ignition through liftoff for your passions and ideas. I especially liked “Creative Thinking Hacks” because I love ideas on sparking creativity. I thought “Attention and Sex” was clever (I mean, let’s face it – the title is quite clever too).

And I liked the physical layout of the book; I’m getting older and the font was easy to read, perhaps a little larger and with a little more leading than most books, clearly set to be read, not to push as much material on as few pages as possible.

There are two or three essays I could have lived without, but overall I’m really glad I read this book and will suggest it to my friends.
