Being Lean: A book for Personal Life as well as Business

#Gifted
Being Lean is a new book out by Michelle Leong.  It is a fascinating book with great pointers on how to eliminate waste (time etc) from your life, but I did find it quite a hard read. 
Being Lean by Michelle Leong

The book's aim is to help you achieve a better quality of life at home, in health, when travelling and at work.  If you can keep up with the book then there's a strong probability that you will meet those aims.

Review of How to Be An Explorer; An Outdoor Activity Book

#Gifted
How to be an Explorer is a great new publication by Button Books which aims to give youngsters the skills and know-how to get out and about.  

The book has many skills that I remember being taught as a guide from what to take in your backpack, to how to start a fire safely to boiling water in bamboo, to making a tree nest.
