Leading at the Edge of Chaos: How to Create the Nimble Organization - book cover picture

The consideration of the human component of the organization should not be overlooked- nor it's importance be minimized. Anyone who has ever tried to lead the unwilling or otherwise disinterested can appreciate the value of the Human Due Diligence model. Recent focus on employee satisfaction polling and scores underline today's concern with the "happy" employee, assuming that he/she is also the more complient, resilient and productive one. This book is a melding of how humans function in transition and organizational change. It provides a formula and certainly a novel slant to a topic much written about. Daryl Connor has taken concern for employee's feelings about their work environment directly to the heads of corporations and their boards. He creates a replicable framework on which to build an organization that can recognize, adapt to, and recover from change faster than it's competition.

This book is amazing! I feel it saved my life. I highly recommend this book and the books by Patricia Evans.Lundy's experience in counciling men who abuse has enabled him to see through the subtle lies and manipulations they often do to get their way. He includes many examples, advice, and outlines in full detail the types of things abusers will do to keep you within their realm of control.An excellent book.

Applying Use Cases: A Practical Guide - book cover picture

After reading through the sixth chapter of this book the light bulb goes on and suddenly you start to understand how everything fits together using the UML and Unified Process (UP). This book is the how-to of applying UML and UP where as the Unified Modeling Language Users Guide and the Unified Software Development Process are the foundation on which to build this understanding. If you read the two previous mentioned books first and then read Applying Use Cases then the overall brilliance of using a modern use case driven, architecture-centric, iterative/incremental software development process will fall into place. This book is the missing link for UP and UML.

Hard to Put Down

Book title: Rules of Prey
Rating: 5/5

Rules of Prey - book cover picture

Very suspenseful tale about a "Ted Bundy" type individual who has singlehandedly placed fear in every brunette in the Twin Cities area. He's a very twisted bloodthirsty yet highly intelligent professional man who makes these rules for killing individuals. Davenport plays the cynical yet smart and passionate detective who uses unorthodox but effective methods of tracking the killer. Very heart pounding in your face thriller and quite a debut for Sandford. Davenport's character is very easy to dislike in this one because he demonstrates the thin line that separates him and the killer. Sandford has given us a hero who is very flawed but he's being realistic in his approach. Face it, not every individual who hunts down bad guys is a highly moral self-righteous church goer who wants us all to get along. DAvenport is highly selfish and very much a womanizer. He is also smart, ruthless and tough. These attributes are necessary when going after a cold-blooded killer.

The Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings (Paperback)) - book cover picture

The primary influence of this work is deeper than storytelling. If you read the Lord of the Rings, it will change your life for the better. Some perceive the changes immediately; others perceive them over time. As Gollum descended into shadow, you will rise from it. If you have not read the book, I'm sure these comments sound contrived and condescending. After you read the Lord of the Rings, you will get a feeling for what I am trying to express. The reason the Lord of the Rings is so popular is because it has a profound psychological effect on virtually everyone who reads it. This influence is pervasive and obviously not the reaction of just a few fanatics. The most mysterious aspect of this is the fact the influence becomes more profound with subsequent readings. You will get more out of the book on the second or third reading than the first. Middle-Earth becomes a place you will visit over time and this is one of the few books that you will read again and again.

I found this book very enlightening. It brought together ideas I've found in other books, such as "Order out of Chaos" by Prigogine, "The Moral Animal" by Wright, and "This Place on Earth" by Alan Durning. The really neat thing about this book is that it crossed disciplines, and made it a lot clearer to me how our behavior effects the world around us, and just what the limits of science are.

I was interested in learning more about Afghanistan as my best friend had traveled there to help the people stay safe during the elections. This was the only book I could find about the country in the bookstore.

I was amazed to learn about the history, political figures, wars and conflicts of each of these dangerous places. Each chapter gives amazing backround, and I found that when I read the newspapers, I understood the world conflicts better. The chapters of Afghanistan, Chechnya, and Columbia were particularly good.

At times a bit yawn-worthy, if it's a country that you have no interest in, but as a research tool, it's amazing.

Thanks, RYP.

Isaac's Storm : A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History - book cover picture

I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my son. When it arrived, I glanced at the first page and the next thing I knew I was on page 35! A non-fiction tale written as a novel. Fascinating look at people going about their business not knowing a tragedy is about to hit. Even the scientific details about how a hurricane develops were interesting. Loved the political infighting going on at the Weather Bureau. The aftermaths of the storm were particularly moving. Anyone who lives near the ocean should read this book. Hurricanes should never be underestimated.

I'll just say that I'm a hard core Clarke fan. And I really enjoyed this book. Perhaps the story is a little "jumpy" at the beginning, and perhaps, too, the characters are not as well developed as in other works. But still, this book has many of the attributes I look for in sci-fi: an epic view of the history of the universe, a look at humankind in this context, an effort to imagine other types of life, and a scientific support coherent enough to be believable.
Again, if you enjoy reading Arthur Clarke, I'd bet you will love this book.

I have read all of this author's books, as well as all of the books of John Grisham (both lawyers), and can say that Mr. Brandon's works compare very favorably with Mr. Grisham's; Certainly Afterimage is MUCH BETTER than Mr. Grisham's latest (THE BRETHEN)!. This is also J.B's best in that it will keep the reader involved from the first paragraph to the last. Much sentiment, very mysterious, much love, and many touching remembrances.Congratulations to Mr. Brandon!
