Gooday. It’s business book review day & we’ve got a Wall Street Journal bestseller…
Eric Barker is a former Hollywood screenwriter & is best known of his blog. Barking up the Wrong Tree. Which presents science-based answers & expert insight on how to be awesome in life.
Eric has taken the learnings from his blog & written a book by the same title, which reveals the extraordinary science behind what determines success & how anyone can achieve it.
‘Barking up the Wrong Tree’ proves much of what we believe how success happens, isn’t what it seems & that there are other factors to consider in most situations.
Eric has studied, what separates the extremely successful people from the rest & details for you, what you can do to be more like them. Helping you understand what works & what doesn’t work.

• Why pirates run a great business
• How Genghis Khan can help you find an ideal work life balance

• All the bad things you need to stop doing
And do you know what?
It’s a brilliant book & compelling reading. It’s packed full of amazing (evidence backed) stories, which you’ll struggle to absorb in a single reading.
I found it thoroughly entertaining. Which is sometimes difficult to achieve with a business book & even though I don’t need to, I’m going to read it again. Just in case I missed something.
It’s a must read for anyone really. Young or old & no matter where you are on your career path. It’s got fabulous insights to help you progress to the type of success you are seeking.
‘Barking up the Wrong Tree’ gets a big thumbs up & 5-stars.
