Reading Mavericks at Work, Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win, by William C. Taylor and Polly LaBarre, in preparation for opening his own business.

His comment on the book--it's a little dry and, while it's set up by topic with examples of how companies implemented certain strategies, it would be better if it was organized by company instead of by topic. What he's learned so far--nothing new, though he's only on page sixty.

Recently he read Ugly Americans: The True Story of the Ivy League Cowboys Who Raided the Asian Markets for Millions, by Ben Mezrich, who also wrote Bringing Down the House (see 9/25 entry--it was the reader's favorite among other game, sports, gambling books).
