Summary of Conquer Change and Win

Change is one thing you can’t avoid. Learning to handle change with grace is a valuable tool for personal and business success. Author Ralph Masengill, Jr. shares his tactics, techniques, and methods for dealing with change in constructive ways.

What I liked about Conquer Change and Win

There is a lot of good, useful information in this book. Masengill covers change from a variety of perspectives and provides blueprints for managing change within an organization. His writing is personable and the book is fairly comprehensive.

What I didn’t like about Conquer Change and Win

There are a lot of things I didn’t like about this book. The writing, although personable, was choppy and sometimes awkward to the point of incomprehensibility. There were plenty of typos, as well.

There are pages and pages of quotes. Yes, the quotes are related, but because they are just listed one after the other, it bogs the reading down and slows the progress of the information.

What I’d Love to See in the Second Edition

This book could use a good content and line editing. Like I said earlier, the content is sound, but how it is presented will cause most readers to throw the book away in frustration before getting to the good stuff.

There are several places where the information is presented as bulleted or numbered lists. The information in many of these lists would be better served in either prose style or as worksheets or cheat sheets.

I would love to see this book cleaned up and organized more tightly. Then I might be able to recommend it. Once cleaned, it might also be a good idea to provide some downloadable cheat sheets or a workbook to go with it, facilitating the translation of information into action.

Conclusion

Although there is good information, I can’t recommend this book at this time. It would frustrate and bore most readers. You have to have a lot of patience … and time to decipher awkward phrasing … to read this and get anything good out of it.

I also try to provide balanced information so you can make your own decision to read or not read the book, even if you disagree with my opinion.
