News & Opinion: "From Effectiveness to Greatness"
Stephen Covey's The 8th Habit was recently published in paperback. The reason I mention it is because Simon and Schuster, the book's publisher, recently uploaded a podcast on The 8th Habit. If you read and enjoyed The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, you may enjoy the podcast of the 8th Habit.

With the sad and startling news that Stephen Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, had passed away earlier this week, we were reflecting on the contributions he had made to the business book industry as well as those he gave generously to us at 800-CEO-READ. And in that reflection, we recalled a Q&A he did for us last year to promote his then new book, The 3rd Alternative, which was released in paperback this April. We hadn't yet used the Q&A as we hoped to soon incorporate it into an Exploration within our new KnowledgeBlocks program.

Heather Green has written a wonderful review of Jeff Howe's Crowdsourcing: Why the Power of the Crowd is Driving the Future of Business for the September 29 issue of BusinessWeek. After observing that "Books about the crowd are becoming a crowd unto themselves," Green writes: What sets Howe's book apart is his focus on business, an examination of different crowdsourcing models, and a deep dive into academic research to explain why people work together. It's a welcome and well-written corporate playbook for confusing times.
