The book is inspirational and could have a profound effect on your life. I loved the book so much, I bought a copy for every member of the GIMT staff!!
Reading Blackboards, bubbles and cappuccinos was heartwarming, inspiring, and challenging and left me contemplating my work choices on another level. It made me evaluate my purpose and passions and weigh up my risk profile. I couldn’t put this book down, and it lured me back when I did – even after I had finished reading it.
Empowerment between two covers! It inspires me, with every read, to live a life that reflects my deepest values and to fully be the author of my own experience, creativity and most treasured dreams.
Blackboards, Bubbles and Cappuccinos is a novel, but with a strong inspirational and self-help element. The story revolves around Robin, an executive toying with life in the corporate world, and Michael who has given it all up to follow his dream to run a coffee shop with a blackboard to write down inspirational lines. As Robin climbs up the corporate ladder and Michael surrenders to his dream, both have changes in their lives that they were not expecting.
Interspersed into the story are Tearle’s pearls of wisdom or meditative mantras. Most of them you want to read over and over again, or write down in a special place to access when you are feeling down, undervalued and lost on your path. These inspirational sayings, the wisdom of Michael, mean that the book should not be read at face value as that of a novel, but appreciated in small doses before going to bed, or early in the morning. Reading the book this way allows the reader the maximum benefit to the various ideas that Tearle is hoping the reader to leave with.
Many people, who are trapped in life, especially the corporate life filled with its daily stress, would do well to read this book and learn more about themselves in the process.
