You are unmistakable! Did you read it yet? Huh, did ya?! Well, if you don’t know what I am talking about go check out January Book Reveal: A.W.E. Book Club. A Writers Earth has a book club and I want you to be a part of it! Reading does a lot of good for you. It is a great way to expand your knowledge, relax, and for my fellow writers out there become a better writer in general. If you do know what I am talking about, welcome back! January has flown by (can you believe it?!) and that means it is time to talk about our January book, Unmistakable: Why Only is Better Than Best by Srinivas Rao.
The great thing about this post is that there are no spoilers, so if you haven’t read the book yet, read on freely! You are an individual. Trying to be the best is basically impossible because you are the only you that exists. However, we still manage to compare ourselves to others. It can be hard to see yourself as a work of art who is valuable and set apart from the rest of the crowd; nonetheless, it is still true. I hope this book helped pick you up and worked as a great way to start off the new year. Quite a few people don’t really enjoy self-help books or reading words of encouragement and that’s okay. Books we read the rest of the year will range all through the spectrum of book genres.
I hope that if you have not read the book yet or are one of those people who doesn’t like the positive go-get-em’ type books that you will take a chance and read this one. Whether you are trying to start a business or feel you have lost your drive in school, or any situation in between that is, Rao has a way with his words that will help you remember why you started it all. You could be in the line-up or you could be tumbling in a massive wave. (Book reference. Go read it!) Where you go from there is up to you.
The great thing about these posts is that even though this book was for January, no matter when you choose to read it or no matter how late into the year you decide to comment, the conversation never has to come to a close. Comment below and let me know your thoughts on the book. If you have any suggestions for the coming months please comment with those as well. Check back soon for part 2, discussion on specific moments from the text and why they stand out.
