Read Reviews of Sharking
Sharking is well-written, full of engaging anecdotes, and is loaded with sage advice from which anyone could benefit. His three-step process is right on the money. Eric, as with my books on billiards, recommends a method of quickly and efficiently putting sharks methods in their proper perspective so you can go back to what you were doing before you were disrupted.
Didn’t change anything for me. I did laugh in a few spots, so there’s that.
I Don't Believe in One Size Fits All
Many of the scenes are funny. Some seem embellished. I get what the author is saying, and I’m not saying it doesn’t present something to try. I just think it’s not going to be everyone. I don’t believe in silver bullets or one size fits all. With some adversaries in life, this will work. With others, it won’t phase them one bit.
Well-Conceived and Sharp
Sharking details how to identify and counter people who want to see you fail (or at least reach lesser levels of success). By using what happens in billiards as example, some great observations are made. The great lengths that opponents will go to make use of the smallest of distractions makes for a great read. It makes you think about what people say in conversations at work and at family gatherings. By recognizing peoples’ ill will and tactics earlier, you can better defend yourself. You can shift your mindset to believing that no matter what obstacles are placed in front you, you will easily overcome them.
Recognize the Tells and Avoid Being Had
If you’ve ever been played on a car showroom floor, boonswoggled by clever copy on Ebay, or mislead on a Craig’s List deal, this book will come in handy. It helps you recognize the tells. You’ll learned to separate the salesman from the product. We’ve all been there and there’s nothing worse than being had by a slick salesperson. Sharking walks you through the process slowly and shows you what to look out for and how to combat it. Using pool sharking as a metaphor, these crossover techniques put you in control. Bravo! Worth it at any price.
