HOW GREAT DECISIONS GET MADE
10 Easy Steps for Reaching Agreements on Even the Toughest Issues by Don Maruska
“In trying to resolve a challenging business issue, twenty people are likely to offer twenty (or more) different approaches. Rational discussion may eliminate some of the less viable choices. But what do you do when you reach the inevitable impasse where diametrically opposed opinions, voiced by passionate and intelligent professionals, block any chance of real progress?”

I skimmed this, I’m to far down in the food chain for it to actually help me, i don’t think I’ll need it anytime soon.

Non-Fiction Book of the week from chapteraday.com
MAO’S LAST DANCER by Li Cunxin
“In a small, desperately poor village in northeast China, a young peasant boy sits at his rickety old school desk, interested more in the birds outside than in Chairman Mao’s Red Book and the grand words it contains. But on this day, some strange men come to his school–Madame Mao’s cultural delegates. They are looking for young peasants to mold into faithful guards of Chairman Mao’s great vision for China.”

I skimmed this on also, not interesting for me, I won’t read it.
