January 11, 2008 -- Friday afternoon


Reading Good to Great, by Jim Collins. It's about companies that are doing well--for instance--Wells Fargo and Gillette. He recently went back to to school to study finance.

Favorite book--Dune, by Brian Herbert. He read it in High School.

His taste in books has changed. He used to read more science fiction, like Vonnegut, but now he finds him cynical. Now, he's been reading more about finance and history. He just finished a book about the Cold War.

If he were to write a book, it'd be about China--he spent two years living there and learning the language.

You have a cool blog.

I like reading nonfiction too like Good to Great by Jim Collins. Presently reading Jerry Porras' Success Built to Last.
