REVIEW for Rain

A huge, huge thank you goes out to Wiley & Sons for sending me this great little book. www.wiley.com


AUTHOR: Jeffrey J. Fox

GENRE: Business

RATING: 4 Stars

Rain, written by Jeffrey J. Fox is an interesting book taking a twist on a memoir and business. Rain is the story of a paperboy, who, at a young age, decides to take on the responsibility of distributing the paper - and in the course of his getting up every morning and making sure he meets his commitments, he learns a variety of business lessons, ethics and beliefs that mold his teenager years as well as his working years as an adult.

What I liked about the book was the straightforward way in which Fox created Rain. Rain discovers the joys of making his own money, of getting business acumen and getting a leg up on business in general. There are no complicated business terms here and the storyline is fun and engaging.

The only thing that was a tad annoying was the fact that Fox kept referring to Rain in the third person and calling "Rain" every two seconds - but other than that, this book was a lot of fun to read.

Fox should be commended on making a boring subject, actually a fun read.

Sounds good. I think it's sad that our papers are now delivered by adults in cars and children can't get that early business experience anymore.
