Book review: ‘Triggers’ by Marshall Goldsmith

Sparking positive change and making it last.


I bought this book having heard a favourable review of it on one of my favourite podcasts. It’s a self-help book about changing yourself for the better. It sounded pretty constructive.

There are a few useful, although hardly ground-breaking suggestions in this book. And it’s pretty readable—although, as I imagine with many self-help books, the key suggestions might simply have been presented as a handful of bullet points. But, on the whole, it provides food for thought. Which is all you ever really need from a book.

OK, if you’re into that sort of thing.
