This is the first in a series of occasional posts about what I’m reading now and why. Books that is, if I started writing about the stuff I’m reading on the Internet I don’t know when I’d have time to sleep.
OK, two books I’ve got on the go at the moment. The first is Mind Maps At Work by Tony Buzan. I’ve been a fan of using mind maps in my job as a software engineer for a couple of years; but have never read anything from the man who really made the general public aware of them (in the UK at any rate) Tony Buzan. I’m about half way through the book and so far I’ve found some useful tips; but at the same time I’m not too comfortable with the way the book is written. I’m not going to comment further on this at the moment until I’ve read the whole thing.
The second book is The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle (don’t you just love the menus on his web site? Now how cool are those?). This book is Tolle’s best seller and, in my honest opinion, is a revolutionary work in spiritual and personal development. The book is next to my bed and I’m reading it slowly because there’s a lot to take in; but so far it has given me a great spiritual boost. Eckhart, you rock man.
