The Executive Self Help Novel is a series of short non-fiction books on business management, leadership, inspirational, motivational and self-improvement topics. Each book is an imaginary discussion between a retired professor who thinks unconventionally and a corporate executive who thinks like the crowd. This is a unique professor who thinks, “What is popular may not be right, and what is right may not be popular.”
Most self-help books are normally written in a textbook or step-by-step guide format. But these books are written like a novel in a conversational style with interactive lectures, candid arguments, and idle talk between the two who belong to different generations. Each book discusses some self-improvement concept or an aspect of the executive’s personal or professional life and the professor enlightens, alters, or completely demolishes the executive’s earlier thinking and assumptions. The first book in the series is The Power of Laziness followed by The Extreme Minimalist and others. However, each book can be read independently.
