Both excellent books.
I am starting a new position at work as a supervisor and have been given a bunch of leadership books to read from the company.
21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and Winning with People both by John C. Maxwell topped the list...good books for dealing with people. I'm about to start What Every Manager Should Know About Training.
Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for anything except bringing a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
I'm reading The Confusion by Neal Stephenson. It's Book 2 in his three volume Baroque Cycle. Just finished the first one - Quicksilver. Interesting historical fiction with tons fact that after the first book seems to center around the theme of money, why is there money, why we value and set values to things...along with alchemy, the history of banking, and Sir Isaac Newton all thrown in. It even has lots of pirates and whores in it! Whewww!
Tough read but fascinating and very rewarding. It is as they say a rousing yarn!
To quote stephen King in the book Cell: "Neal Stephenson is a God!"
