Thought provoking wisdom on the digital age

Being a fan of Forbes and ASAP makes me somewhat partial. Oftentimes business books tend to wonder off into their own world of advice and author tainted views. Not so with Big Issues. It takes you to places you want to visit and places you never knew existed. Like "Lessons from the Top," by Thomas Neff and James Citrin, Big Issues offers advice and wisdom from many perspectives. It's a book full of forest and trees on how the Internet has wedged its way into all our lives. Key chapters abound like Screw's Al Goldstein's `Cybersex Leaves Me Limp,' and Andy Grove's `Only the Productive Survive,' offer insight hard to find elsewhere. It's one of those rare books you can take with you and just open up to any point and read with interest. Like fine music, I will enjoy this read over and over again. I loved this book.
