Just got done reading "The Fifth Discipline," not bad, but not as good as "Reframing Organizations."

J.L. Bourne is a damn good writer. One of the best zombie writers out there today, along with Brian Keene (when he writes zombie fiction).

Read the summary at Amazon- sounds like it's right up my alley. I've been meaning to read me some Sagan, I might have to pick this up.


About half way through the chapter about slaughter houses in fast food nation. It's not often I feel sick to my stomach from something I read...
