Great review material

Any additional comments?

After 25 years in management at a Fortune 500 company I was familiar with the messages these 10 articles delivered. Each of them offers tips and techniques that when culled to address my personal needs create a map that allows me to be more efficient and effective. I was disappointed that I had not researched the topics well enough to understand the most of the material wasn't current research. It's still very applicable in many ways though.

Not a "must read" for a business person

Only a few of the articles were interesting but not "must reads" for a business person. Perhaps the articles were novel at the time they were published. Since then, many of the insightful topics have been expanded into books. A business person would recognize some of the authors like Peter F. Drucker ("The Effective Executive"), Jim Collins ("Good to Great"), and Daniel Goleman ("Emotional Intelligence").
