Have had much time to read lately, but when I have, I've been greatly enjoying Wake me when the Data is over. Less of a "how to" than a "how it's been done" of storytelling, this collection of case studies stimulates possibility thinking in just about every area.
We've been getting ready to shift house, so all the other books are going into a box. Well, nearly all of them. There's a small pile of books I have promised myself I will read over the coming months. By listing them here, I hope to keep that promise.
- Dragon and the Foreign Devils: China and the World, 1100 Bc to the Present
- The Memoir Book - the clearest and most creative memoir writing-guide available (!)
- The Visual Story: Seeing the Structure of Film, TV and New Media
- In the Blink of an Eye Revised 2nd Edition - a perspective on film editing (by the amazing Walter Murch who edited and did sound on THX 1138, Apocalypse Now and other films in the canon of films everyone should see)
- Leadership for the Disillusioned: Moving Beyond Myths and Heroes to Leading That Liberates
- Coaching the Team at Work
- Economics (a little book of big ideas)
- Get Motivated by Justin Herald
- On The Wealth of Nations (Books That Changed the World) by PJ O'Rourke (about the original by Adam Smith)
- Marx's "Das Kapital": A Biography (Books That Shook the World S.) by Francis Wheen
- The Da Vinci Notebooks by Lenny himself.
That should keep me busy for a couple of years!
