Inspiration comes from any number of places. I appreciate the quiet contemplation that comes with reading a good book and wish I had a chance to do it more frequently. These are the books that I'm reading right now. The Game by Ken Dryden. Fueled by a personal fascination in the many similarities between sales performance and athletic performance, I picked up this book and discovered that Ken Dryden is actually a very good writer delivering a remarkable reflection of the pre-million-dollar-salary bygone era of professional sport, and in particular, the Montreal Canadiens. (An old-fashioned paperback with pages I can turn and covers I can fold back when I want to.) Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman, the only non-economist to ever win a Nobel prize for economics. Kahneman’s depiction of the two human thinking systems helps helps us understand why we react reflexively to some things and why we analyze other things more deeply. The fast intuitive thinking system he calls System 1 and the more logical measured method, System 2. I picked up the book originally after I heard Kahneman interviewed on CBC by Michael Enright. What's on your night table? If you read something great, please share it with me.
