Worth Sharing: Essays & Tools to Help Project Managers & Their Teams

[Caveat: This is my book! So there is (duh!) some conflict of interest in my recommending it to you! However, I honestly believe it’s full of good stuff that any self-directed learner can use to develop project management (PM) skills & insights. And since it’s FREE to read all 300 pages online, what do you have to lose?! — Mike Greer, owner/editor of this blog.]

It consists of 54 Chapters and hundreds of live links to additional PM resources.

Thought Vibration (The Law of Attraction in the Thought World)

Topic: The Law of Attraction
Format: MP3 audio (1 hr. 47 min. download; free, but registration required)
Reviewer/email: Mike G – greers_pm@yahoo.com

This audio is flat out amazing! It’s a powerful, intelligent reading of all 16 Chapters of William Walker Atkinson’s 1906 Thought Vibration, or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World. This work is one of the foundations of the “new thought” principles that you might have come to know through the movie and book, The Secret, as well as all manner of publications related to the Law of Attraction. I originally downloaded this out of idle curiosity — to learn a bit about the roots of The Law of Attraction. But I was blown away by the crispness and vigor of Atkinson’s writing — the clean, direct expression and force of his ideas. And these are beautifully and energetically rendered by narrator David Mitchell.  This no soothing, sleepy, new-age audio — it’s an “in your face” tour-de-force that will challenge you to rethink what you believe about the way you think. And if you think you know all about The Law of Attraction, then this work is likely to surprise you with some new content and a sometimes edgy attitude. I loved it!
