Books I’ve Been Reading

Getting Started in Consulting [Review]

  Getting Started in Consulting is my second read from Alan Weiss. The first book was titled, Value Based Fees, which I also wrote about at the time. Getting Started in Consulting is not what I was hoping it would be. That been said, there was a lot of...

Futuristic Violence & Fancy Suits [Review]

Futuristic Violence & Fancy Suits is a novel by David Wong, AKA, Jason Pargin. I think that might be his whole name, actually. With the AKA and everything. It’s how I always hear him introduced. So, for the duration of this book review, I’m going to...

When the Music Changes [Review]

When the Music Changes by Elfreda Massie is not the sort of book I would typically pick up and read. I tend to gravitate toward the heady, rather than the spiritual. And in fact, I would say on most occasions, I outright avoid books with a proclivity toward religious...

Our Revolution [Review]

Our Revolution by Bernie Sanders is the story of Sander’s run for president, and the detailed unpacking of his policy positions that couldn’t possibly have been conveyed through the 8 second sound bites the media wanted from him at the time. It’s a...

Flatland [Review]

Can you imagine what it’d be like to live in two dimensions instead of three? Probably kind of. Of course, that imagination is contaminated with all kinds of three dimensional thinking, you still get the idea. How about four dimensions though? I’ll bet that’s almost...
