Book Review: God is My Coach

I recently was given the opportunity to review the book "God is my Coach: A Business Leader's Guide to Finding Clarity in an uncertain world" by Larry Julian.

The book did not fit my needs perfectly since its primary audience will be individuals interested in strategic planning, mentoring, and/or coaching; however, the book was certainly useful for individuals in such fields. As a resident of the Twin Cities, I particularly enjoyed Julian's mention of several businesses from the local area. The back cover features a recommendation of Brad Anderson, CEO of Best Buy, a Minnesota-based company.

One particular gem of wisdom from the book, which I was thoroughly pleased to ascertain, was Julian's opinion on giftedness. Julian stated, "Your giftedness is the intersection of what you naturally do well with what you love doing," (Julian 8) a highly useful notion.

While the book was useful for business, I personally did not agree with the religious comments by the author since he appears to subscribe to the beliefs of "Born Again" Christians.

All in all, a good book for those interested in one-on-one coaching, mentoring forums, or strategic planning.
