Brian's latest post about bears killing people... errr, Lloyd Carr's legacy, got me to thinking about what sorts of books I read. So, what are the last three books you've read? I'll admit that it's not Kipling or Keats or Joyce.
3) "Human resource champions" by Dave Ullrich (who happens to be a professor at Ross), which was a landmark book in the mid-90s about HR theory, blah blah blah that none of you care about. I consult in this space, so thought I should read up on some of the more impactful literature.
2) "The world is flat: a brief history of the 21st Century" by Thomas Friedman, about how the world has changed so significantly in terms of business, communication, technology.
1) "If we were gone: The world without us" by Allan Weisman, about what would happen if humans suddenly disappeared from the earth. How would nature react, what lasting impacts would we leave behind, etc.
Current: "Running with the Demon" by Terry Brooks (scifi/fantasy) - just started it yesterday now that the dang olympics are finally over, so haven't gotten far yet.
Next: Probably going to be "The Unthinkable: Who survives when disaster strikes - and why" by Amanda Ripley - I have it on hold at the library, which is where I get ALL my books. Supposed to be a fascinating study on the "psychology of fear" and how humans react during a true catastrophe (fires, hostage situations, plane crashes, and 9/11).
EDIT: Just checked the library website and saw that they have Bo's Lasting Lessons on the shelf! I'll have to hurry and get through Running with the Demon and check out Bo's lasting lessons. It'd be a great way to kick off the season!
