For some reason I go on a reading binge early in the year.
- Long Tail – Chris Anderson — worth reading … the concept is simple, but Chris’ numerous examples really flesh it out.
- Leadership and the New Science – Marg Wheatley — very good.
- The No Asshole Rule – Robert I. Sutton — very good.
- Dealing With Darwin, Geoffrey Moore ( here is a post applying it to PMCS in the 90’s )
- I really like this extension of the “Crossing the Chasm” model. Moore’s models provide a great platform from which one can describe, discuss, and then act. The good news is that he has covered the whole life cycle from start to finish. The bad news is that this is now a big model which requires a lot of work 😉
- Seeing What’s Next: Using the Theories of Innovation to Predict Industry Change – Clayton M. Christensen, etc
- still in progress. his books are great.
I’ve been doing a lot of work with meditation over the past 2 years. I didn’t do any reading on the subject until this year. I still find that the practice really works, but that reading about it is not always straightforward.
- Luminous Mind: Fundamentals of Spiritual Practice (Paperback), Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche
- The second half of this book is very readable. I found it very helpful in understanding the developmental path of a meditator. I’m sure glad that I didn’t read this until now. I needed to be familiar with the concepts and jargon first.
- Bodhisattva Mind: Teachings to Cultivate Courage and Awareness in the Midst of Suffering – Pema Chodron
- This is a great listen. It is a tape of a conference in Boulder, CO. Pema displays great skill in mapping Buddhist concepts into the mindset of USA (and the west ).
- Lamb – Christoper Moore Way too much fun 😉 What did Jesus do during those missing 30 years. Chris Moore makes up an entertaining version. Christian purists might want to avoid this.
- Golf of Your Dreams – Bob Rotella What is Spring without reading a Bob Rotella book?
- Charlie Bone and the Invisible Boy – Jenny Nimmo — not Harry Potter, but will do until the Deathly Hallows comes out 😉
I’m certain that I’ve missed something .. but I’ve been putting this off for too long .. ’tis now done
