I truly enjoyed Fishy Business! Authors James and Bill Ignazio have combined the best advice for fisherman with the best advice for managers to create a practical and totally entertaining paperback of wisdom. I especially enjoyed the narrative tone of the book, through which we meet Frank, a businessman who meets the mysterious Old Angler, the living folklore hero of the local fishing community. Through Old Angler, and other colorful characters, Frank reaches another level of business savvy, while easing the tension from his taut bones.

I read the book well before joining Upwork, and it certainly made me a believer in how freelance marketplaces like Upwork will help revolutionize how we work and operate on a day-to-day basis. Chandhini Balakrishnan, Category Manager. Tim Ferriss’ ‘4-Hour Work Week’. There are so many nuggets of lifehacking awesomeness in that book. It’s not cut and dry either. It has a really personal voice that you can relate to and nothing feels too lofty and far away from accomplishing. Alvin Ding, Marketing Manager.

Ancient philosophy does not only teach us how to live well and become better humans, but it can also help us work better. Stoicism reminds us that we are in control of our emotions, actions and reactions and that you can turn your obstacles into opportunities to grow. According to the ancient philosophers, time is limited, yet we fill up our time with distractions, never asking whether they are important, or whether we really find them of value.

Business, American style, is often associated with war and sports games. Many managers routinely pepper their casual conversations and meetings with such phrases as we gotta hit one out of the park, take no prisoners, and be a team player. In Fishy Business: How the Wisdom of the Angler Can Help You Succeed at Work, James and Bill Ignizio offer angling advice that applies to business as well. Through colorful fishing adages accompanied by market-proven business analogies, readers will discover the winning link between fishing and business... Fishing-- Don't fish for pike like you would for bass Business-- Know your customer Fishing-- The confident angler needs no applause Business-- The motivated manager doesn't need an audience According to James and Bill Ignizio, fishing analogies, unlike the war-and-games approach to business, fit the real world, allowing readers to draw parallels between them and real-life situations. They reveal how fishing analogies are far superior to the present war-and-games approach because fishing is universally understood and does not focus solely on winning or losing. Fishing also does not diminish self-esteem. It encourages the development of patience and persistence. With fishing there is no loser. Life goes on whether people catch their limit, a single fish, or nothing at all. Short-term goals, and their undue stress, are replaced by a long-term perspective, and a sense of peace. Business should be more than forming arbitrary lists and computing cost benefits with little or no regard to the individuals involved. Fishy Business espouses real thinking from which comes real progress.

Plenty of parallel advice here, too, like: A good fisherman knows when to change rods, and a good manager knows when to change course. There1s even a surprise ending! I highly recommend this book. A relaxing, entertaining and downright interesting read! --Karen Plunkett-Powell, author The Nancy Drew Scrapbook..Home Design From the Inside-Out, etc

I came across this wonderful book while searching for an Operations research book written by Dr. Ignizio. It struck me as rather curious as why such an eminence in his field (apollo project to name one)would wonder into the non-academic world with bits of wisdom seen through the fisherman?s eye.

It turned out to be a surprise as any as I have seen before, not only advice on how to manage your middle age crisis, but also how to manage those unconnected works events that have presented as intractable all yield under the wisdom Dr. Ignizio radiates. What makes it more sublime its its 3 pages chapters so you can grab a bite in your hectic schedule.

This book offers the business person another way to approach success. While I think there is a much deeper value in fishing as it relates to life, this book is more on the surface. But like a lot of analogies where you try to bring together dissimilar things into one, there are many mental stretches when it comes to business. And some don't fly so well. This is a book more for bass fishermen than say flyfishermen which I believe is the purest essence of the sport. If you like this book, I'd also recommend "The Fisherman's Guide to Life" by Freeman Criswell.

Finally, a business book that makes sense. That's just what I thought after reading "Fishy Business." Instead of preparing for war, the authors tell people in business to relax and enjoy life. Go fishing. I especially liked this get back to basics theme. I think college business courses would be a lot more interesting if professors used books like this one. If you are in business, you really have to get this one. It's brilliant.
