The Skinny On Series

by Stephen Mills on October 9, 2010

There is a wonderful series of books called “The Skinny On” that I recommend you check out.  The idea behind the books is to distill the very best information possible about various topics into a compact and easy to read format.  The author, Jim Randel and his team, study the very best books and research in the topic area and create a fun and easy to read book.  They are structured and organized for easy future reference.  From the author:

“The books examine and synthesize the leading research on an array of topics, determine the bottom-line, need-to-know information, and present helpful analysis in an engaging stick-figure illustrated narrative.”

I tend to prefer long deep books and yet I love these little books and I think you will too.  This is a fantastic idea and one I wish I had thought of 30 years ago!  The ones I have read and can recommend follow.  Notice the overwhelming positive reviews.

  1. The Skinny on Success: Why not you?
  2. The Skinny on the Art of Persuasion: How to Move Minds
  3. The Skinny on Time Management: How to Maximize Your 24-Hour Gift
  4. The Skinny on Willpower: How to Develop Self Discipline
  5. The Skinny on Networking: Maximizing the Power of Numbers
  6. The Skinny on Creativity: Thinking Outside the Box

Hi Stephen, I remember getting the Skinny on Self Discipline last year and loving it. There’s a fair old selection now and I would definitely consider buying some more.

I have never heard of these books before. I will have to find out a little more about them. I like larger books, too. It might be nice to read something smaller for a change.

Hi Gabby,
I am disappointed that you have never heard of the skinny on series! I am a publicist with the company and I would love to send you a book or two from the series. My email address is courtney@randmediaco.com. Please let me know which book you’d like and the best address to send them to. Thank you!

I like the titles. I like to learn new things and this sounds interesting. I think the first one I will try is Thinking Outside the Box. This world is getting so crazy, we all have to find another way to go.
