    The Art of Execution

    https://www.amazon.com/Art-Execution.../dp/085719495X

    Love this book as it talks about ways to sell. Also goes into trading personas.

    currently reading aloud (to my Mum) Kane and Abel by Jefferey Archer. Its a story of two boys with nothing in common except being born on the same day in 1906, and how their live eventually entwine as they climb to their fortunes.

    We've just got past the 1929 crash bit (gulp)


    • Kane and Abel is a 1979 novel by British author Jeffrey Archer.
    • It reached No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list.
    • Kane & Abel is among the top 100 list of best-selling books in the world

    “Don’t Turn out the Lights” was quite enjoyable

    Took it back to the Tip Shop for somebody else to enjoy

    While there bought a book on the history of lighthouses built on rocks around the UK.....”Seashaken Houses” for 50 cents. Really fascinating how they built some of them.
