I got "The Adventures of Johnny Bunko" from my dad for Easter. I wish I had this when I was a senior in highschool, not that I would have believed it anyways. Hindsight is 20/20.
Daniel Pink is a pretty interesting person, though. I've only read/heard a little bit so far about him and what he has to say, but it all seems to make a lot of sense. Using scientific basis for organizing your business, etc. I'm certainly not in management, but I wish more places were run in the manner he describes.
I don't know if you guys are familiar with TED at all, but it's essentially just a ton of really intelligent people talking about everything and anything. Some really fascinating stuff, and a lot of it is essentially saying that many of our systems are completely inefficient and not doing as good a job as they could be. I hope the people that run our country watch the videos or better yet attend the conferences.
But anyways, I think I've rambled enough. Per usual, the ulterior motive to this is to perhaps distract some of you from writing journals of your own, so that I'll have less to catch up on. Life seems to be consistently too busy.
