The Top 10 Books

MarkO just laid down the gauntlet on a book list and tagged a few of us to respond.

Here is the best I could come up with this evening

1. One book that changed your life:
Dialogue by William Isaacs. This is a book that not only changed my life but one that I wish I could have read ten years earlier in my life as it could have helped me to remain more open and resolve more conflict.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once:
The Lord of The Rings. It was a sort of have to read more than once as it took me so long as a kid getting my head around it all.

3. One book you’d want on a desert island:
The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell as it’s focus on social networking would eventually lead me to madness on my own.

4. One book that made you laugh:
JPod by Douglas Coupland. I love all his writings but this one is an all time classic in my mind.

5. One book that made you cry:
Synchronicity by Joseph Jaworski. This is a business type book with a spiritual kick. It was very engaging throughout but the last two chapters kicked my ass.

6. One book you wish had been written:
Beyond Salvation. A book that led people into a meaningful life that was beyond religiosity and engaging to the world at large

7. One book you wish had never been written:
The Purpose Driven Life. I just have a beef with this book as in my mind it leads people to have a stronger focus of church as an institution instead of a corporate identity.

8. One book you’re currently reading:

The Long Tail. This is another interesting business book about how small is big.

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:

The Art of Demotivation. This is a humorous yet poignant book about getting in touch with who you are and who you are not. I bought it over a year ago and it stares at me every day.

10. One book you’d like to write:
Ideas and Innovation – The Hope of Sustainability. This would be a book that links creativity and innovation to a preferable future here on earth. It would be a book to lead us beyond what we see as comfortable and lead us into being ruthless pioneers.

I like your book choice mark. Do you MSN or Skype, it would be good to chat. Sorry for being crap at chatting, I read your blog though. I'm kind of stalking you.
