Several years ago I attended some course delivered by Nicholas Bate of Strategic Edge. If I’m brutally honest Nick and I didn’t hit it off during the first course. I was a petulant student but by the second course I really enjoyed listening and learning from him.
We both moved on to new stuff but thanks to the blogosphere found each other again in the last year or so and have followed each others blogs since. Nick has very kindly shared some of his recent books with me and this week I got a new batch. I’ll slowly work my way through the books but there are two great short publications available in PDF from Nick’s blog
The first is How To Think Like and is a short read on how you can learn from Steve Jobs, Richard Branson and others. The second is You Were There and takes you through some historical moments. Both are quick and fun to read.
