News & Opinion: Books on Blogs - 9/12/06
If you read the blogs that I do, here are the books you would have seen mentioned over the last week or two:
Curt at The Occupational Adventure is reading Energy Addict: 101 Physical, Mental, & Spiritual Ways to Energize Your Life by Jon Gordon. He says he is adding it to the list of book he regularly recommends to clients.
Paul at the Idea Sandbox talks through the six factors that made Walt Disney successful. He draws on the material from How To Be Like Walt: Capturing Disney Magic Every Day Of Your Life by Pat Williams.
You can find some interesting picks in Kevin Maney's Thursday CEO Book Group. Each CEO posts an old book and a new book they like. Last week Kevin posted the choices of two CEOs -- Howard Anderson and Steve Waite. Both chose The End of Medicine as their new choice. For their old choice, Anderson went with Drucker's Management and Waite went with Complexity by Mitchell Waldrop.
Matt Blumberg at Only Once writes quite a few book reviews under the heading "Book Shorts". His latest post gives a thumbs up to Dealing with Darwin by Geoffrey Moore and a thumbs down to Small Is The New Big by Seth Godin.
