Those two of you who actually look at this site may wonder why I haven’t posted any book reviews in over a month. Lots of reasons. Things got busy at work. I got a new car, so I was driving instead of taking public transit to work, which cut into my reading time. I took a five-day weekend to attend a friend’s wedding in Washington D.C., where I almost finished a book (David Brin’s Transparent Society) on the plane ride back, but haven’t gotten around to finishing it since then. I’ve been distracted trying to keep up with my normal Economist and Science News subscriptions. I’ve been trying to write more blog entries. October and November are the start of the new television season, so I was watching a couple new shows and several old favorites. It’s also football season, so Sundays now have a significant time-sink. I’ve started playing ultimate and taking salsa lessons. Lots of excuses. No good answers. And it’s not likely to change until the new year because I’ve got craziness in the chorus coming up, with the christmas concert and the Messiah on consecutive weeks in December. Rest assured I will get back to reading at some point, probably when my monster Amazon order gets in – I currently have something like $100 worth of books sitting in my shopping cart at Amazon, just waiting for me to click “Checkout”.
About me: I'm an unrepentant generalist finding my way in a world of specialists. I started this blog to review books, but I later expanded to write on whatever interested me across a range of topics.
I am also an executive coach, helping leaders become more effective by creating clarity and acting with focus. You can learn more about my coaching at Too Many Trees, or by checking out what I share on LinkedIn around leadership and personal development.
email me if you have any questions or comments.
I send out a biweekly newsletter to share what I've been writing and reading. You can check it out here, and sign up below.
