Review by bookworx
Great little bedtime story from a guy you feel like you know and trust. Make the tea first, you will read this in one sitting. Kind of like The Alchemist, a self described fable, but with the core theme of Emonomics (my word I think) or more accurately Egomomics as it deals with reconciling human nature in corporate culture. Falls back into life lessons a bit and affirmation, or rather 'allows' you to. Like a foreign correspondent on the evening news wearing a suit & tie & boxers on a balcony in Beirut, you become embedded. Refreshingly Non preachy. Read Getting Naked in tandem with Change by Design as both are rooted in religious reverence (one for his wife and the other for himself respectively) and balance each other like a feather and an anvil..... with a very lopsided balance beam. He ain't heavy, he's my author :-J
