A good piece of writing a blog is willing to experiment and try new things. A few months ago, I tried something new to write a book review about Bill Wilson's When Words Collide. If you haven't read it, it's still online. Read it now.
Not long after the post was alive, a "young" man came to me and offered me to send me his new book. Let's be honest. I enjoy reading enough that if you offer to send me a book without offering me to pay for it, I am on board.
Then I met Bill Kirksey, author of a Cuban love affair. Now you wonder what (if any) this has to do with what I would normally write about. Give me a minute and I'll get there. You just have to trust me.
You're right, this book is just tangentially related to the insurance world. It's really Bill's way of telling his story from his point of view. It's about him, his family and their two great adventures; life and an escape from Cuba.
If you can imagine sitting down with Bill and telling him some stories, a Cuban love affair reads like that. He tells the story in a stream of consciousness in some way.

You will learn how he confused the storms of life when his business went through various cycles.
Why read it? Many strict business books put the cookies on the bottom shelf for you. They should tell you what to learn from them, give you admission and summarize everything in a neat package.

It is part adventure, sub-memorial, part love story and partial instruction in life and business.
You should read it if you like a good old story.You read about a man who seems almost bigger than life.You read about the courage needed to do something like, most of
You should read if you want to learn some lessons through the eyes of others. Bill does a good job about the things he learned along the way. many problems in their life and business and you will get away with some lessons for yourself.
Overall, I can not tell if it is for you or not. Only you can. What I can tell you is that it is a br a story, a worth telling.
