The Hunting Wind: An Alex McKnight Mystery (An Alex McKnight Novel Book 3)
The Hunting Wind: An Alex McKnight Mystery (An Alex McKnight Novel Book 3)
Steve Hamilton delivers another solid performance! I've just started reading the Alex McKnight novels, so far this one is my favorite.
First off, I really enjoyed the atmosphere that Hamilton creates with the location being in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It reminds me of Poisonville/Personville in Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest.

Hamilton did a great job of linking years and time together between two close friends before the big leagues and after when they've both careers cut short. However, they are both linked by one time, place and a woman. McKnight's friend is in search of this lost woman because he could not let her go. Little does McKnight know, there is something deeper to the connection with this missing woman. Hamilton's characters are great and relate-able. I think we all have a friend like Randy, who has an itch that can't be scratched. I felt bad for McKnight being dragged into a case he didn't really want, but wanted to help out his friend. McKnight once again demonstrates his dominant trait of loyalty and trustworthiness. He doesn't stop until the mystery is solved. I think we could all use a friend like McKnight.

Great book, leaves you guessing til the end.

Moonshots: Creating a World of Abundance
Okay--I'm going to start by saying that this book makes me a bit angry.

And it's not for the reasons you may think: it's because this is SUCH an important book, and it's not being taught to the masses, and heralded in schools (well, of COURSE not, as they are as Jain puts it, 'too invested in the status quo' to have a book as innovative as this in their system).

This book is literally having a billionaire/genius/philanthropist in your ear, letting you know where the world is going, how to capitalize on that and how we can ALL make this a better place for humanity.

It tells you what the future looks like. It's like the Wayne Gretzky quote about skating to where the puck will be...yet the rest of mankind is happy going through life in a trance, content with incremental changes...without knowing about the tsunami of massive change that is already happening all around us.

As impressive as this book is in telling us what will happen and how life will change, the most important aspect of the book is that the reader gets a glimpse into HOW the mind of Naveen Jain works. He is, without a doubt, the most optimistic, positive, possibility-oriented person I've ever experienced--

And this book is like a roadmap to that mind.

It lets us know not what to think, but the possibilities of HOW to think.

It's amazing, it's groundbreaking, and as dense as society is right now, I don't think the brilliance of this book will be discovered until many years later. It's almost too much to handle, as the folks in mainstream media, more concerned with who is marrying who, and what somebody said about someone else can't get their collective minds around such important ideas.

Thank you, Naveen for writing such an important book.

P.S. The picture is an example of how I've marked up and highlighted this book. It's amazing. It's the textbook to the future.

P.P.S. I got the Audible and hardback versions, so I can listen, then go back and take notes. It's that impactful.
Today and Tomorrow - Special Edition of Ford's 1926 Classic
Today and Tomorrow - Special Edition of Ford's 1926 Classic
I have been working in the field of 'lean' process improvement for a few years now. Like many other I was led to believe that it all started in Japan in the 1950's. Wrong! The roots of the Toyota Production System were in the Ford Production System - so why isn't this fact broadcast by the very business academics and 'lean consultants' who peddle their wares in the marketplace? Why isn't this book required reading for EVERY employee, employer and MBA student? Perhaps because Henry Ford achieved his success without the help of legal and financial departments full of expensive overhead - corporate lawyers and accountants! In fact he actively eliminated them from his businesses! Ford's dream was to create a form of transport that anyone could afford - for example the workers in his factories - because this would free people from a hand-to-mouth existence and release their time to reinvest in developing themselves and supporting their families and communities. Ford was a social engineer as much as a mechanical and process engineer - his goal was to reduce poverty. To achieve his vision Ford focussed on the process of manufacture; he empowered employees by creating a new organisational model - a context that insisted on industry, innovation and creativity from everyone. Contrary to the stories told later, he paid all workers a higher than average minimum wage; he only allowed employees to work 8 hours per day; and he expected a good day's work in return for a fair day's wage. Ford insisted on discipline and set clear expectations. Only those prepared to work in this way were welcome: trade unions were not required because the vision of the employer and employee were aligned. In reading the account of his philosphy in his own words I became aware of how much the stories I had heard of Henry Ford had been distorted; I was struck by how relevant the lessons are today; and I felt annoyed that it has taken me so long to discover this fascinating book! So I'm doing my bit to spread the word! Simon Dodds

There are so many good, hooking songs on this CD it's impossible to mention them all. I first heard these songs ten years ago and they're still with me, despite the many times I've lost the CD (and bought new ones).
"Don't You Feel My Leg" is one of the most original American songs I've ever heard, and the musicianship is just awesome. I hear this song and am transported back in time -- and to New Orleans mind you...
Elvis Costello's cameo song is also great: "That's How You Got Killed Before" hasn't been covered by any of the new Swing bands, but it should be a standard for once and all.
There's not one bad song on the CD. And so many of the songs have a strong sense of humor so if you're listening to the lyrics more than the horns you'll get a kick there -- but then, the horns are what this thing is all about: one of my favorite mental soundtracks.
