I’m excited to announce that my friend Steve Woodsmall is the author of an amazingly awesome book with a catchy title, It Beats Eatin’ Lizards: Lessons Learned in Life and Leadership. Steve shares stories of lessons learned while he was an officer in the United States Air Force, a basketball official, consultant, instructor, manager, and several other roles where one must clearly realize and adjust to the reality that there is a HUGE difference between being a manager and a leader. Steve just doesn’t talk the talk, he walks the walk and he has plenty of experience, knowledge, and wisdom to back him up.
Let me share just a little about my dear friend Steve… he holds a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Technology, a master’s degree in Business Administration, and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Organization & Management with a specialty in management education. He also has a Post-Master’s Certification in College Teaching. He’s an avid golfer and SCUBA diver, and has four children and three grandchildren. Steve and I attend school together and we currently are in the same class- the military officer and dad in him comes out frequently as he reminds me about attending class on time each week!
You will quickly find out how this well-written book published by Xlibris earned its title, and why I have given it five out of five stars, two thumbs up, and have declared to add this to my collection of books to reference for many years to come.
Don’t believe me?
Check it out for yourself- it’s available in hard cover and paperback online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It is also available in both versions and as an ebook through Xlibris. If you don’t want to order online you can also order through your local book store’s order desk, or call (888) 795-4274 ext 7879 and then contact me later so I can say loud and clear, “I told you so!”
