Books

Postby Jason » Mon Aug 11, 2003 2:43 pm

Seeing as I have a crap load of time right now, I was looking for books to read, but I was also looking for something I could read at work and it wouldn't look like I was slacking off too much. In that vain, I'm mostly looking for books on three subjects: leadership, figuring out what to do with your life, whether or not to go to business school. Mostly I've only found what I think are self-help books where the reviews aren't exactly objective so I'm not sure how good the books are. You guys know of any books like this? Can you ask around?

Here are a few I'm considering ...

this is not exactly related, but might be an interesting read

I think peijen's view would be much the opposite as that book called "The Myth of Laziness". I'm envisioning a title called "The Truth of Laziness".

Try "The DEFINITION of Laziness"
