No *Who Moved My Cheese?* It's a classic.

Oh, my god. I was forced to buy the "Six Thinking Hats" book AND video tape (on VHS!) last year, and I died inside the whole time I was on Amazon.

We also have:
"Fun Works!" and "The Five Disfunctions of a Team". And I've never even peeked inside either of them, but my day is coming...

Work sucks it.

I've only read "Getting To Yes," which was for a class. It actually was interesting.

"The Five Disfunctions of a Team" is on the top of my pile. My boss requested that we all read that in advance of a team-building session. Well, until the session actually appears on my calendar, I'm not reading it. It's been on my desk for four months. And you know when I started this job!

until you major in human and organizational development and leadership and organizational effectiveness, you have no idea the depth to which you can go with horrendous book titles such as these.

In all seriousness, how full is your bucket? Because I've heard things. Weird, disturbing, strangely erotic things.
