I started this one on my lunch break today. There was a lot of parts that relate to my current situation, but really spoke to me.

• Today's smarty-pants word: "encomium," meaning "glowing and warmly enthusiastic praise." Not to be confused with the medical term "meconium" Lol •

I probably should have read this in 2006 when I bought this copy but better late than never? Much of what Stewart discusses is not only still relevant today but something organizations continue to struggle with and need desperately to figure out. I‘m feeling a bit reinvigorated to head back to work after my Christmas break - so this book did its job.

This is why I enjoy reading old business books - to see the ridiculous predictions that have never even been close to coming true.

I sometimes struggle to feel like I'm actually accomplishing anything because I've taken so long on my dissertation, but putting this message up in the study room at my library to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of their new building made me realize just how much I've done!
(I actually wrote over 60,000 if you include notes)!

SaunteringVaguelyDownwards I'm actually going to combine this with day 2: #knowledge! 4mo

There are 2 things I think are really important to know about this book. 1 : it‘s amazing how much was going on, outside the bounds of what was taught in my World History class. And 2: the father of surgery, Khalid al-Zahrawi wrote a book titled “The Arrangement of Medical Knowledge for One Who is Not Able to Compile a Book for Himself”. It‘s petty and I love it.

Adding this #Nonfiction #medical book to my #TBR stack. I'm excited to read Mukherjee's follow up to his wildly successful #EmperorofAllMaladies.

I enjoyed this book very much(pub.1985). I love having the cross cultural perspective that these Folktales are able to achieve and bring. These types of books are some of my favorites because it shows off cultures other than the one I live in.
Aside from that, I think that the illustrations are very unique. I like the constant theme and background with the writing and the illustrations.
