  • Change or Die: The Three Keys to Change at Work and in Life

    What if you were given the ultimatum: make a radical shift in your life, or lose it all? This was the question Alan Deutschman posed in "Change or Die", his sensational cover story for the May 2005 issue of Fast Company. Surprisingly, Deutschman concluded that although we all have the innate capability and fundamental need to change our behavior, we rarely ever do.

    This book helped me to realize the need in all of us to cope, get beyond coping and change for the better. Read this book. It will show you how to change your life.

  • Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box

    Story
    (141)

    Most personal and organizational problems are the result of a little-known problem called "self-deception". We deceive ourselves into thinking we're doing the right thing for the right reason, but people won't follow a leader whose motives are selfish. The tricky thing is, we don't know that our motivation is flawed.

    Sean says: "Not quite "out of the box""
    "Must read"
    Overall

    If anyone has ever told you they "have a problem with you", you have to read this book. This book unfolds like a novel but (at least for me) gave me that "a-ha" moment to show me where I am messing up in the way I communicate with others in the world.

    The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: a large colony of humans; the Pequeninos; and the Hive Queen, who was brought there by Ender Wiggin. Once again, the enemy (the Starways Congress) has gathered a fleet and is threatening to destroy Lusitania. Ender's oldest friend, Jane, an evolved computer intelligence, is trying to save the three sentient species of Lusitania, but the Starways Congress is destroying the computer world she lives in.

    Jim says: "Hmm"
    "A bit over the top"
    Overall

    I loved all the ender books. However, this one was a little bit too "new age". If you want to hang out for the end of ender it is fun to listen to.

    David Sedaris' collection of essays - including live recordings! - tells a most unconventional life story. With every clever turn of a phrase, Sedaris brings a view and a voice like no other to every unforgettable encounter. You can also listen to Sedaris in an interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air.

    Hoot this book she was. David is funny from the first line to the last making fun of conventions of acceptable speach. Fun listen.
