Book Review: The Wisdom Compass

The Wisdom CompassBookstore shelves are weighed down with tons of pages of self-help books and manuals that virtually ensure success at whatever you do - if you’ll only do a couple of things, which may include any combination of the following: visualize more, dream bigger dreams, focus harder, verbalize affirmations, take time to slow down, strive to speed up, work smarter not harder…etc.

Rare is the book that actually blows through the puffery and offers proven, workable solutions that can be applied on a daily basis – The Wisdom Compass by author Theodore Henderson is exactly that type of rare book.

The Wisdom Compass is an actionable, 31-day peak performance program that seeks to develop multiple facets of the reader: mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually and relationally.

The author, a current business consultant and former corporate sales executive, deftly blends his more than 20 years of practical experience with meaningful commentary and thoughtful questions along side the ancient wisdom gleaned from the 31 chapters of the Old Testament book of Proverbs. 

What makes this book unique is that each of the 31 days within The Wisdom Compass corresponds with the appropriate chapter in Proverbs. Henderson ably amplifies the enduring relevance of that Proverbial wisdom with current, tangible examples that have application in the workplace or the home front.

If you’re looking for a worthwhile departure from the traditional path of self-help fare and pablum, The Wisdom Compass may be just the tool to guide your journey.
