Books for a Sick Bed

In between writing e-mail messages to clients and napping, my snail-like recovery has involved a lot of reading. Among the books are:

Instant MBA by Nicholas Bate [More on this later. I think it's his best book.]

Montcalm and Wolfe by Francis Parkman. A fascinating account of the strategies and brutality that produced the French and Indian War.

The Tao of Warren Buffett by Mary Buffett. A quick and easy read of the wizard's investment strategies.

11 Month 11th Day 11th Hour by Joseph E. Persico. What happened on the last day of the First World War when attacks were ordered even after the precise hour of the armistice was known.

Gunman's Rhapsody by Robert B. Parker. The novelist's take on the Earp brothers and the gunfight at the OK Corral.

The Speed of Trust by Stephen M.R. Covey. An excellent study of the key ingredient for team success. [More on this later.]
