Our prodigious effort to provide you a top-notch business library on inBubbleWrap continues this week with one of the most influential books of the past decade--The Wisdom of Crowds by James Surowieki. I assume that because you follow this blog, you're immersed enough in the business book subculture to know about The Wisdom of Crowds. (If not, Todd will tell you all about it in the video below.)
If you haven't read this book, or would like a copy for a friend, even if you just need something to put under that kitchen table leg for balance (the book is 0.73 inches thick), then head on over to inBubbbleWrap and win yourself a copy. We have 25 available.
It's an admittedly worn device to use the alphabet to organize one's thoughts, but when reflecting over the past decade and trying to distill the most notable events and objects that affected our company and also the publishing industry and business sector into a brief blog post, I found such a device to be quite helpful. As Jack put it when we initially discussed writing a decade-in-review post, not only is it like opening a can of worms, it seems like whenever one harkens back to the Millenium, one can't help but get sidetracked into thoughts about 9/11. But of course there were many more ups and downs that we've all been a victim and/or a participant in, and this list is an attempt to do that chaos a little bit of justice.
Here is another feature we are going to try on for size. I thought it might be interesting to see what books the business media is picking up on. In our first installment, we are going to look at the May issue of Business 2.
