February Reading

February 2002
Trends in Organizational Behavior, Volume 6, The Virtual Organization edited by Cary L. Cooper & Denise M. Rousseau
Great information on the various issues in researching virtual organizations.

Virtual Teams by Jessica Lipnack, Jeffrey Stamps
This is my second time through this book. I liked it even better than the first.

Work & Rewards in the Virtual Workplace: A ‘New Deal’ for Organizations & Employees by N. Fredric Crandall, Marc J. Wallace
This is probably the first HR book I’ve read. I think Crandall & Wallace do a terrific job at explaining how to transition pay and benefits to the “new deal.” A worthwhile read.

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
I picked up the
RecordedBooks CD version of this book for a road trip. Steinbeck’s portrayal of the characters is incredible.

The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis
I love this “dream” of Lewis. He offers profound insight to life and our daily, mundane decisions in this slim volume.

Capturing the Heart of Leadership: Spirituality and Community in the New American Workplace by Gilbert W. Fairholm
I found this book to be incredibly tedious and only finished it because it was required for an MA class. I wouldn’t recommend it. James O’Toole’s
Leading Change: The Argument for Values-Based Leadership is much better.

Woodrow Wilson by Louis Auchincloss
I listened to this as a “book-on-cd.” I enjoyed Auchincloss’ easy flowing style. Very informative life of an interesting president.

Mariel of Redwall by Brian Jacques
This is the fourth book in Jacques Redwall Series. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold by C. S. Lewis
This is unlike anything I’ve read by Lewis! I’m impressed that he’s so familiar with the classics that he can faithfully retell this myth in such an authentic manner. I highly recommend this work.

Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way by Susan McCutcheon
An amazingly detailed book about birth intended for both husbands and wives.

Wealth in Families by Charles Collier
David Dunlop calls this one of the three best books in development. I highly recommend it for all families. Wealth is far more than money alone.

Supernatural Childbirth by Jackie Mize
This is an eat-the-chicken-spit-out-the-bones kind of book but there’s a lot more chicken than bones!

Taliesin by Stephen R. Lawhead
Great fantasy book but a little tough to go through at first. It definitely gets enthralling. I was in tears at the end (more than when I watch Anne of Green Gables!)
