1) Knowledge@Wharton - Confessions of a Recovering Workaholic: For many years Jonathan Lazear spent long hours building a literary
agency whose success brought him the usual trappings - large house,
new cars, expensive vacations. It wasn't until he realized that his
work habits had led him to ignore virtually every other part of his
life that he stepped back - and wrote a book. In The Man Who Mistook
His Job for a Life, Lazear talks about being addicted to work and
offers advice to help readers avoid the same fate.

9) Seven LEAN Years: Trying to get a "good" job -- that is to say, a job that is above the
national median income of approximately $14 per hour as of 1998 -- is
getting harder and harder for a surprising new demographic in
America. While the conventional wisdom and the media "talking heads"
keep on droning endlessly about a supposed "high-tech labor
shortage," the reality of the labor situation in the early twenty-
first century is far different from a shortage. The truth about the
economic desolation of the American middle class is being hidden by a
barrage of press releases emanating from professional spin-doctors
who have an agenda that is in opposition to aspirations of the
mainstream American high-tech worker.
10) A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole: Dave : The Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole is one of my
favorite books. It's very funny. Highly recommended. If you want to
understand what's going on don't think of others being such a
confederacy. Instead think of us all as dunce-like dancing puppets,
and you'll be closer to Great Hair.
11) BookRags Notes: Old Man and the Sea: An old man named Santiago has gone 84 days without catching a fish.
During the first 40 days of his unlucky streak, he fished with a
young boy named Manolin, who had been with the old man ever since he
was five years old. Due to Santiago's bad luck, however, Manolin's
parents told their son not to fish with the old man. They forced him
to join up with a more lucrative boat, which ended up catching three
good-sized fish in its first week.
12) The Internet Classics Archive | The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius: From my grandfather Verus I learned good morals and the government of my temper.
From the reputation and remembrance of my father, modesty and a manly character.
From my mother, piety and beneficence, and abstinence, not only from evil deeds, but even from evil thoughts; and further, simplicity in my way of living, far removed from the habits of the rich.
From my great-grandfather, not to have frequented public schools, and
to have had good teachers at home, and to know that on such things a
man should spend liberally.
14) Amazon.com: buying info: Built to Last: ...the organizations who "get it" understand the power of this blending - basic research, applied engineering, talking to the people from whom you wish to take money (ie, customers). a great example of that outside the computer/communications biz is 3M.
there's a book, "Built to Last", which i'm told looks at some
companies and finds several very counter-intuitive results. i won't suggest
it's right or wrong, but it seems thought-provoking...

My pitch to programmers, which is far more revolutionary
than any programming language or operating system can be,
is to look for understanding where you find it, work with
people you want to work with, and don't waste time with
people who won't listen and aren't grounded in the truth.
I have your great site on my link
page. I do not know if you have seen my first book or not
but in my book I
have some great interviews with long time raw fooders that
many people loved
and are asking for more. I am now working on my next book
and will have some
great interviews. Some of the people I am interviewing for
my next book are
Virginia Vetrano, Arthur Andrews, William Esser and Fred
Bisci. They all say
they know you and suggest I contact you to see if you'd be
in having an interview in my book. If so I can put your
contact info and
website info in my book. My first book is quickly becoming
a best seller in
the raw food movement and I know my next book will be even
bigger and better.
Please let me know if you are interested in being
interviewed and would it be
easier by email or phone.
