Why I Wag my Tail by Shannea L. Patterson is both a personal and practical story of how the author found a whole new purpose and peace in her life. Using the dog metaphor of wagging a tail to show friendliness, Patterson shows readers how it is possible to create the business and personal life you want and have optimal life experiences, simply by changing your approach. After having one bad experience after another and unable to figure out why, Shannea suddenly saw the light after a casual conversation with a friend. She began to realize that by looking at things differently, and redefining joy, peace and success for herself, her whole world could open up to exciting new possibilities. Clearly written and filled with examples, Why I Wag my Tail could jumpstart both a new work and personal life for readers, as well as break down invisible barriers.
Thought Provoking Personal Journey, Humorous, Insightful
By Linny Ellen - April 10, 2011
I thoroughly enjoyed Shannea Patterson's refreshingly honest account of her journey through the often painful and always fascinating world of work and human relationships. With amazing self awareness, and laugh out loud analogies and conversations with herself she shares her lessons. By defining for herself what it means to succeed and how the choices she made along the way supported or impeded that success, she opens our eyes to what it really means to take personal responsibility. I highly recommend "Why I Wag My Tail".
A thought-provoking book

We might think that we have all the skills we need to knock down the door of the our dream-company with extreme certainty of our readiness to tackle all the challenges we might face, but keep in mind that something is missing. I am almost certain that there is no other sources better than this 58-pages-book "Why I Wag My Tail" that could inform us about what is missing.
This is a great book in which the author shares with us numerous experiences she faced in her professional career. I truly enjoyed reading the book and found it to be very informative. I believe there is nothing more awesome than enjoying reading such an insightful and thought-provoking book . I highly recommend this book.
A fun and helpful read!

I wish I had read this book about 15 years ago - it would have saved me years of being too feisty for my own good! The author does a great job of describing her own journey in discovering ways to make it through daily challenges in her career and finding ways to be her best self in everyday life. It really made me think about how I can do things differently in my own life, and also think about how great it would have been to learn these lessons when I was just starting out in the professional world. The author tells her stories with humor and honesty, and it's a very quick enjoyable read. I think it's a good book for both young and not-so-young adults!
