The Energy Bus

  • Comment

‘This is a good book for teams to restore belief in individuals and gain more as a team and flourish in their personal lives, and working towards a work life balance.’

Title: The Energy Bus

Author: Jon Gordon

Publisher: John Wiley and Sons

Reviewer: Jane Brown, quality governance manager, clinical support, Worcesters Acute NHS Trust

What was it like?

This was exactly what it said on the tin. This follows George from the moment he wakes on the dreaded Monday morning and typically he has a flat tyre. Life for George is disorganised and so is his team. So when a new product is launched he needs to get a grip on work and home life. He needs to take a bus to work. Thus begins the reconstruction of his life and work.

What were the highlights?

This was a great positive book and so enjoyable at the same time. Some books of this type can be hard going and not only does the reader have problems, but the book becomes an irritant too. Not so in this case. This is such an easy book to read and I have to confess to reading it in one sitting.

This book is believable and the reader can take some or all of the ten rules in George’s ride of his life. 

The characters on the bus were real and believable and all played their part to help George in his working and personal life.

Strengths & weaknesses:

The strengths were that the reader gains inspiration from this. The weaknesses are with the reader – if they do not realise life is too short then the reader had failed to gain anything- I doubt any reader not to gain creative inspiration. This is written in a really easy format to read.

Who should read it?

This is ideal for ward managers and healthcare establishments (the book is not written for any specific work place, and would be generic for a lot of workplaces). This is a good book for teams to restore belief in individuals and gain more as a team and flourish in their personal lives, and working towards a work life balance.
