My New Book on Amazon: “Business and Baseball”

Business_and_Baseball_Web_My new Kindle book, Business and Baseball, just opened up on Amazon.

About the book:

“Play ball!”

Baseball… America’s favorite pastime. Though there is much dispute about who actually “invented” baseball, what is undeniable is that this great game has given us a metaphor both for business, and, in many cases, life.

Many famous baseball quotes are now business and baseball quotes in both our day to day conversation, and our business communication.

We all know people whose business presentation, “Hit it out of the park.”

Of course, “You can’t win ‘em all!”

And all the famous Yogi Berra quotes that regularly add sparkle, wit, and clarity to our personal and business conversations: “It’s déjà vu all over again,” and “We were over-whelming underdogs,” or, “The other teams could make trouble for us if they win,” and, “Slump? I ain’t in no slump — I just ain’t hittin’.”

Saul Steinberg also reminds us that, “Baseball is an allegorical play about America, a poetic, complex, and subtle play of courage, fear, good luck, mistakes, patience about fate, and sober self-esteem.” Doesn’t this sound a lot like our day in and day out experiences as entrepreneurs and small business owners?

This easy, entertaining, and motivational small business philosophy book takes the small business owner and entrepreneur on a metaphorical ten inning journey (free baseball! [find out about free baseball in the book]) with business and baseball quotes and business lessons, looking at what we can learn from life on the baseball diamond to help us make our businesses work better.

This is an Amazon Kindle book not an actual printed volume, so you need a Kindle to read it… but  if you are not yet a Kindle owner, Amazon also has reader apps for Smart Phones, PCs, and Macs, etc., so you will easily be able to read it.

For all of you who read Business and Baseball, I certainly would appreciate an Amazon review. For all of you who are kind enough to review the book, post a comment here with a link to the review on Amazon, and, of course, a link to your own site… we all win.

Thanks in advance to all who read the book and review it, and… enjoy the game!
