News & Opinion: Who Are "They" Anyway? and Excerpt Blog

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:27 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

You can find the book excerpt blog over at or by clicking on this link.
BJ and Steve's book is interesting because the first part is written using a poetic form. Each page of the book is a thought or idea. We have kept that formatting for the excerpt blog. Each page will be posted as a separate entry and we have tried to maintain the formatting of the text as much as possible.
We will be posting a number of pages of the book every day. We will be running this excerpt from today until next Wednesday.
Also remember, it is posted in chronologically order. You will want to start at the top and read down the page. We are experimenting with this for the excerpt. Like I said on Saturday, we think it will be a better format for this type of blog.
We also have an RSS feed for the excerpt blog if you want to subscribe.
We hope you enjoy the story and the new blog. Let us know what you think.
