    Book review: The Culture Map

    Book review of The Culture Map This is a book review of “The Culture Map – Decoding how people think, lead, and get things done across cultures” by Erin Meyer. This is one of those books I picked up in the personal development section at an airport. Because naturally I had run out of reading material already. If you want to have a look at what I am currently reading, feel free to find me on Goodreads. Summary “Whether you work in a home office or abroad, business success in our ever more globalized and virtual world requires the skills to navigate through cultural differences.

    Bog anmeldelse: Kvinde kend dit netværk

    Bog anmeldelse af Kvinde kend dit netværk Det er faktisk allerede længe siden jeg læste Kvinde kend dit netværk af Katja Iversen. Men jeg har allerede anbefalet den til en del (ikke kun kvinder) i min faglige omgangskreds. Nu skal du høre hvorfor. Kvinde kend dit netværk af Katja Iversen “Netværk er et håndværk. Det kræver en del øvelse tilsat lidt nysgerrighed og et drys mod til at overskride egne grænser. Bliver du nervøs undervejs? Sikkert. Er det stadig indsatsen værd? Ja! Du ved det godt: Vi får bedre ideer, når længere og udretter mere, hvis vi arbejder sammen med andre. Vi har brug for nyt input for at tænke…

    Book review: To be taught if fortunate

    Book review of To be taught if fortunate To be taught if fortunate is a short sci-fi novel by Becky Chambers. I found it via looking through my friends reads on Goodreads, and it looked enticing. Technically, it is categorized as a space opera. Whatever that means. (A quick online search tells me; “a novel, film, or television programme set in outer space, typically of a simplistic and melodramatic nature” – which doesn’t really say anything) To be taught if fortunate by Becky Chambers “In the future, instead of terraforming planets to sustain human life, explorers of the galaxy transform themselves. At the turn of the twenty-second century, scientists make…

    Book review: The 4 hour work week

    Book review of The 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris The 4 hour work week by Tim Ferris was first published in 2009 and promises an escape from the 9 to 5 day job. In my defense, I picked this book up at the Euro-train station in London, after being delayed for two days. I needed something to read. Summary “Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan–there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, or earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management,…

    Book review: Burlesque or Bust

    Burlesque or Bust by Sapphira I received a review copy of Burlesque or Bust in exchange for an honest review. As I stumbled upon Sapphira’s post in a group about her new book, Burlesque or Bust, about her personal journey with tackling mental health through burlesque, I was immediately intrigued. Having been in the burlesque scene for a couple of years so far, (the first year didn’t really count), I am aware that a lot of artists in the glittery environment, have their struggles. Both physically, financially and mentally. There is no shame in that, as I see it. So I welcomed her book and offered to read and review…
