    Everything about the book, The Little Red Book of Wisdom, drew me in ... the size, the feel, the binding, the font on the cover, and the title itself. Once I opened it, and began reading, it was hard to put it down.

    Mark DeMoss wrote this book to thank his father for teaching him so much wisdom and to pass on to his children the wisdom gained from his father, from life experience and from the Bible. You might wonder, "Who is he and what qualifies him to write about wisdom?" DeMoss himself addresses that question, and his answer is a humble one.

    The Hebrew word for wisdom means "skill for living." DeMoss divides his book into two areas (professional life and personal life), sharing wisdom in 11-12 topics in each area, covering such topics as understanding the brevity of life, finding focus, showing appreciation, learning from those who are ahead of us in life, and more.

    The book is quick moving, but deep, and illustrated with interesting stories. Best of all, DeMoss inspires the reader that anyone can seek wisdom, by starting with a small step.

    "Knowledge has right answers; wisdom has right questions." Do you have the right questions about life? This book is a good place to start learning some of those questions. I think this would make a great gift for a teenager or college student in your life!

    I received this book for free from BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review. The opinions expressed are my own.

    How to make wise choices

    I just finished this book provided by Book Sneeze to review. It was a quick read with very practical insights on how to live a daily life in Christ. The book keeps the reader engaged by giving powerful examples not only of personal experiences of the author, but of real life, high profile individuals. The lessons they learned in making the wise choice in some cases were profound. Credit for these choices often stems back to a faith relationship in the God of the Bible. This faith relationship isn't overly used but is encouraged by the author to have. His faith is extremely evident and helps challenge anyone else who may wonder why they are having so much difficulty with perspective in this life. Mark DeMoss' experiences in the public relation field helps gives the reader reason to have a compass to navigate one's life. He has seen a wide range of individuals trying to put their best foot forward, yet unless it is authentic and real, it only causes a person to fail every time.

    I would highly recommend this book for the sheer practicality of seeing ourselves for who we are, especially in Christ. This book doesn't pull any punches. Its instruction is straightforward in how we need to examine ourselves and others, and the situations in which we find ourselves. We need books like this every once in a while to steer us back on course. This book can be summed up by a quote of Max Lucado's in the final chapter which states, "You can afford many wrong choices in life. You choose the wrong career and survive, the wrong city and survive, the wrong house and survive. But there is one choice that must be made correctly, and that is your eternal destiny (189)." May we all choose the path less travelled.

    "The Little Red Book of Wisdom" had me from the dedication page. Mark DeMoss said he wrote this book "to thank my father and to prepare my boy and two girls in the way my father prepared me." I the like the concept of the book even more than the content of the book and the content is pretty good.

    Much like Solomon, who collected wisdom proverbs for the benefits of his children, DeMoss collects his thoughts and experiences as a legacy for his children. I think every parent should do this. It's a wise practice. That's one of my takeaway's from the book.

    The 190 pages makes it a short read but one from which I have a lot of takeaways.

    DeMoss has rubbed shoulders with people I would have enjoyed meeting, from Charles "Tremendous" Jones to Millard Fuller to Joey Reiman. If you don't know who Joey Reiman is, the chapter entitled, "Work Less, Think More" is for you. Reiman heads Brighthouse, the first "ideation corporation." DeMoss credits Reiman with helping his company develop a culture of "thinking" to give him an edge in business. Reiman's book, "Thinking for a Living" is now next on my list to read.

    "Buy Some Stamps" is a challenging chapter on the lost art of letter writing as opposed to emails, texts and tweets. There is something endearing about a handwritten or even typewritten note on stationary. It says "time," "thoughtfulness" and "enduring." If you read and file notes of encouragement, then you know how many cards and letters vs emails you have in your file.

    "Money Isn't Everything, Good People Are" is a chapter on how he treats his employees. There are some valuable practices and provisions that he makes that are worth emulating. His perspective on the contribution of his staff is healthy - "without good people - trusted, respected, professional, motivated, inspired, rested people - I have no firm." For the owner of a PR firm, DeMoss is more substance than hype when it comes to values.

    I am not sure what Georgia, Mookie and Madison - DeMoss' children - think of their father's writings, but I believe my children, and staff will benefit from the inspiration I received from his little red book.

    Thank you Booksneeze for providing me a copy of this book to read.

    More than any other book I've read recently, this book inspired me to become a better person. I fell in love with the Christian business and personal life principles the author shared and immediately reflected on my own life to see how many I follow. Before I put the book down, I read it a second time and took copious notes and made a commitment to myself to live at a higher level.

    My 5 biggest take-aways from the book:

    1. Stay under your umbrella: stay true to who and what God has called you to do. There is no price tag on doing what you're anointed for and no greater reward.

    2. Work less, think more. We live in a culture focused on productivity and businesses but does that really get us further ahead? What if we regularly took time just to think and see what wisdom God gives us? He is ready to answer but are we ready to listen?

    3. The wisdom of firsts: first hour, first day, first dime. What is really first in our lives? Mark shares the value of putting God first in every area of our lives and the amazing benefits that come from making that choice.

    4. Turtle on a fence post. How did that turtle get there you ask? How do we accomplish all that we accomplish? God's blessing and God's favor on our lives - don't forget to give credit where credit is due and never forget where you came from.

    5. Proverb a day. There are 31 chapters of proverbs and 31 days in a typical month. How much more could we grow in our understanding of God's principles for success if we read a proverb every day?

    As I read this book, I felt the direction for my business shift and I am so excited to implement these ideas. Thank you for such an amazing book!

    "Wisdom is a journey not a destination"

    This 148-page book is all about the little things in life that we tend to overlook, the bits and pieces of wisdom we seldom recognize because we're too concerned of the now, faster and more world. Throughout the book, the author imparts his life lessons and that of his families and friends and even a few famous personalities. It provokes a spiritual reflection by referencing to selected Biblical passages and yet friendly enough not to sound too spiritual in his approach. The division of the book (professional and personal) is typical for the subject matter. The following lines found in the early parts of the book summarize its call for action:

    "Wisdom does not favor intelligence or education, affluence or sophistication; it calls to everyone, everywhere. We need only respond_Live what really matters"

    The Little Book of Wisdom encourages thinking and reflection of how we lived our lives so far. Have we lived it to its fullest and did we focus on the people, things and values that really matter? These questions are most timely for readers age 20 to mid-30s, who are in the peak of their careers or in the pursuit of having one. It is also suited to those people who want to do everything, go everywhere, and experience everything NOW.

    In today's fast-paced world, taking a pause and a breather are seen as costly. The book reminds us that, by doing exactly those things, we could reap greater wisdom and even reach greater lengths. The book inspires us to recognize the merit of thinking and reflection, to acknowledge the random lessons we could get in unpredictable, and often overlooked, situations and to not just do what we've always done.

    An easy read, the author successfully weaved the stories and experiences to emphasize the lessons he wanted to impart. There's no better way of learning and remembering (the lessons) than by storytelling. If you want to be inspired and enlightened by the experiences of others, this book is for you.
