Commentary by Michael Wade on Leadership, Ethics, Management, and Life
When I came across this a few years ago it changed my life.http://www.nytimes.com/2005/12/25/books/review/25queenan.html?_r=1Since then I have boxed up hundreds of books, giving them away to the local bookseller to do with as he wants. I did talk him into trading for a single new book by Malcolm Gladwell, but when I finished reading it I also returned it so he could sell it too. I'm down to about twenty-five feet of linear shelving, treasures I will probably leave for my estate to dispose of.
John,I've given away a massive number of books over the years, often regret doing so, and have been known to buy my own books back from used bookstores.The jungle needs frequent trimming.Michael
