    The silence is deafening with the loss of George Harrison, the "Quiet Beatle," who lost his long bout with cancer last week at the age of 58. George Harrison: A Tribute celebrates the journey of the musician and the man - a journey which, like the traveler himself, is an extraordinary mix of the spiritual and the down-to-earth. It is a gripping, inspiring, and at times amusing portrait of one of popular music's highest-soaring talents - who will be sorely missed.

    Overall

    As a long time Beatles fan, I looked forward to a work that would shed light on George's career, influences and inspirations. After all, George was an incredible complex and true artist, pulled through life by his talent and love of art and the fringe. This audio book only accidentally provides glimpses of Harrison through his own words, while frequently misconstruing facts and events much better described in other works. This book is little more than a sloppy tease that tells us there is a rich an interesting story completely missed by this lazy author.

  • Broken Windows, Broken Business: How the Smallest Remedies Reap the Biggest Rewards

    In Broken Windows, Broken Business, Levine guides readers through his premise that all big dilemmas in business stem from lack of attention to small details. Using dozens of corporate broken window case studies, including McDonald's, K-Mart, Google, JetBlue, and more, he argues that by integrating the solutions to small problems into a much larger plan, the resulting combined solution can stimulate overall business growth, and keep customers coming back for more.

    Jeff says: "Broken Windows or Cracked Foundations?"
    "important subject poorly handled"
    Overall

    The application of the broken window theory to business would have been an important contribution. However, the author subjects the reader to a series of rambles that at times border on parody of a management book. In the end, I'm not convinced that the author even understands the theory he's promoting. All in all, this book was disappointing, with no real practical advice for understanding the theory or implementing it daily.
