    One of life’s greatest little mysteries is why digital books haven’t taken off. I don’t get it. I own the Sony Reader and I love it--especially when I travel. Gone are the days of carrying suitcases full of book--now I can carry dozens of books all on one thin, lightweight digital book.

  • Executive Warfare - By David D'Alessandro

    "You only have to take your adversaries down if they are acting in a manner to damage you. What is fair is fair.

That’s not devious, that's survival."

  • When Markets Collide - by Mohamed El-Erian

    I don’t know what it is, but it’s a fact: summer and reading go together like gin and tonic – two classics that just can’t be ignored when the weather heats up. Ever since grade school we’ve known that summer is a time for reading – real reading, the kind of reading you do for your soul – the best kind of reading.

  • Becoming a Resonant Leader

    I love the 4th of July! I think it’s my favorite holiday because it’s full of such hope: hope for good weather, hope for a great sale and hope for the country. Think about it, this is the time of year when the whole world wishes they too could be a Yank.
