The Little Red Book of Wisdom
“The Little Red Book of Wisdom” by Mark DeMoss is just that: a little red book of wisdom. From business endeavors, to common etiquette, to spiritual growth, this book has a little bit of everything for everyone. I picked it up and wouldn’t have put it back down without finishing if I could have.
The author is the owner of a Public Relations business, and the son of a business owner, so he is well acquainted with the ins and outs of working with the public. His advice isn’t limited to business owners (even though he had some great counsel, such as treating your employees with respect, and keeping opposite-gender relationships above reproach), but extends to any individual wanting guidance for even little, practical things like writing thank-you notes, or listening to your elders.
He devotes an entire chapter on wisdom from the wisest man that ever lived--King Solomon. Using the book of Proverbs, the author quotes the counsel and wisdom of King Solomon that is still practical and applicable for 21st century readers.
Also included is a chapter on ways to not have death-bed regrets, something that this now-oriented generation doesn’t always stop to think about. I recommend this book for the young and old, the business man and the student.
