Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo

Surviving Your Serengeti………The Metaphor

Surviving Your Serengeti………The Metaphor,

I have just finished reading the first two chapters of Stefan Swanepoel’s book titled Surviving Your Serengeti.  What an easy and interesting read too.  Have you read it yet?

From the very start of his book Stefan sets the stage using Surviving Your Serengeti Book Cover the Serengeti and its primary residents, the animals, as a metaphor of our journey through life and how each of the animals handle different situations.  It is easy to see that our journey through this life, no matter where we live, can be compared to the Serengeti and the problems that one can be faced with there.

The book Surviving Your Serengeti is scheduled for release on March 1, 2011.  I would suggest that if you haven’t already, read the first two chapters of the book and take the quiz.  Taking the quiz will tell you which animal you are and your animal traits.

For those inquiring minds that have a need to know, yes I did take the quiz.  I am the Graceful Giraffe.  I have been called a lot of things in my life but never Graceful or a Giraffe, thank you Stefan.

BTW, which animal are you?
