Join us Wednesday, April 10, 2019 for a live show with host Denise Messenger. Our returning guest is John Vespasian. We will discuss his latest book, "Disrupted. How Highly Effective People Deal with Disruptions." He is the author of ten books about rational living, including "When everything fails, try this" (2009), "Rationality is the way to happiness" (2009), "The philosophy of builders" (2010), "The 10 principles of rational living" (2012), "Rational living, rational working" (2013), "Consistency: The key to permanent stress relief" (2014), "On becoming unbreakable" (2015), "Thriving in difficult times" (2016), "Sequentiality: The amazing power of finding the right sequence of steps" (2017), and "Undisrupted: How highly-effective people deal with disruptions" (2019).
Vespasian has lived in Germany, Italy, France, Spain and The Netherlands. His books combine his passion for history, investing, and personal development, reflecting his philosophy of rational living, productiveness, and respect for the individual. "The purpose of my work is to draw practical lessons from history," he explains. "If you want to make good decisions, you have to look at the big picture, and learn from the wisdom accumulated in centuries of human experience."
"Knowledge is the only valid response to stress. the only formula that can make you more effective," Vespasian argues. "My books contain the wisdom I have accumulated in decades of research. It's all about learning from other people's successes and mistakes, and figuring out how to apply those principles in your own life. In every book, I go through biographies and historical events with the goal of extracting from them lessons we can use right now." You asked for it and we deliver.
