The Radical Edge by Steve Farber Have you ever had a WUP upside your head? In The Radical Edge, Steve Farber gets hit with a WUP (Wake-Up Pad) by his friend Smitty, a hyperactive beach bum and successful CIO (Clear Insight Officer) with red dreadlocks, a giant, red mustache, and round, lemon-yellow sunglasses perched on top of his wide, prominent nose. He also consults with a tall, slightly plump African-American woman named Agnes, at least 90 years old, with gray, luminous eyes, who tells Steves leadership trainee that shell kick his ass from here to Hialeah if she thinks it will help him but then explains that it all starts with the heart.

As a person who writes reviews, I am always nervous about whether I am crazy when I like a book. Awhile ago I reviewed Steve Farber's latest The Radical Edge. I liked it a ton.

Review of The Radical Edge by Steve Farber, Kaplan, April 2006 I read a lot of non-fiction, and I don't usually have much patience for business books written as stories. In fact, I wasn't sure what word to use to describe the genre until I looked up Farber's other book after reading this one. Ah, here we go: business fable.

Review of The Radical Edge By Steve Farber, Kaplan, April 2006 Ah, the joy of summertime. A chance to slow down and take some time off. Maybe a quick trip to beach or a visit to family members.

I started with a list of 22 books that I thought deserved year-end honors. The narrowing of the list was the hard part. I quickly marked the ones I knew should be on my list and looked to see if they had something in common.
