I picked up a copy of the new Worthwhile magazine. Multiple bloggers (Curt and Halley) associated with the magazine report that sales are very good on the permiere issue . My personal effort to get a copy required calls to three bookstores in the Milwaukee area.

On my long list of books to read is "something" by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. In Re-imagine, Tom Peters recommends Becoming Adult. In May, The Monday Morning Book Club at the Miami Herald reviewed his book Good Leadership.
NEWS & OPINION: Working Toward Happiness

Like many things, perhaps working hard for happiness makes those moments of happiness, in whatever form, savory rather than just sweet.
NEWS & OPINION: Design Thinking Books

We've started an interesting discussion about design books on this blog, and as the design thinker on the 800-CEO-READ Blog crew, I would like to add some fuel to the fire, as it were. I teach a graduate-level class at Stanford's Institute for Design (aka the "d. school").
NEWS & OPINION: The FT Press/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Longlist
By 800-CEO-READ, published August 7, 2014, at 6:44 PM – Filed under: Publishing Industry
I speculated back in May when submissions opened for The Financial Times and McKinsey & Company 2014 Business Book of the Year Award that the books they looked at would be more focused on business nuts-and-bolts issues now that a consultancy firm (McKinsey) had taken over for an investment bank (Goldman Sachs) as the Financial Times' partner on the awards. I also thought they would not be announcing a longlist as they had in the past because it was not on their awards schedule. It seems I was wrong on both counts, because The Financial Times and McKinsey announced a longlist this morning, and the books on it are mostly big-picture books, not nut-and-bolts business and management books.
