    The world's two deadliest spies in the ultimate showdown. At a small-town carnival two men, each mysteriously summoned by telegram, witness a bizarre killing. The telegrams are signed Jason Bourne. Only they know Bourne's true identity and understand the telegram is really a message from Bourne's mortal enemy, Carlos, known also as the Jackal, the world's deadliest and most elusive terrorist. And furthermore, they know that the Jackal wants: a final confrontation with Bourne.

    Tim says: "Was the Movie supposed to be based on this book?"
    "Good - To much detail - Narrator very slow"
    Overall

    I have read / listned to the Identity, Supremacy and Ultimatum in the space of about 4 weeks. This by far had much more (too much more) detail. There were points that were driven home 5 times, in 5 chapters, when once would have done (especially given the history in the 2 previous books). That said I liked the book. Not as good as the first 2, but I liked it and would recommend it. I put my MP3 Player on 2X speed. Made the slow talking narrator easier to handle. I couldn't have done it other wise. Narrator talks way to slow.

  • The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable

    In keeping with the parable style, Patrick Lencioni begins by telling the fable of a woman who, as CEO of a struggling Silicon Valley firm, took control of a dysfunctional executive committee and helped its members succeed as a team. Story time over, Lencioni offers explicit instructions for overcoming the human behavioral tendencies that he says corrupt teams. Succinct yet sympathetic, this guide will be a boon for those struggling with the inherent difficulties of leading a group.

    Mark says: "Clear Headed Guidance on Building Teams"
    "Great Book on Good Conflict or Debate"
