All Quiet On The Western Front, by Erich Maria Remarque.  That was one of those books that left a powerful and lasting impression.

I have that one on my list to read, Lorna.  My youngest read it in school, and he recommended it.  

But, for now, I'm revisiting The Brother's Karamazov again.

DG,s followup recommendations sound intriguing as well.

This week I shall be mostly reading Narziss and Goldmund by Hermann Hesse, which is absolutely wonderful. I love Hesse's books generally - every one I've read so far has been a treasure. I'm working up to The Glass Bead Game slowly, though - by all accounts that's very much more formidable  :shock:

Just finished the James Reason book - which I would strongly recommend to anyone interested in safety cultures. He looks at all the famous disasters too, and the causes.

Finished the Early Church, and now the follow up one on the Medieval Church, plus Max Ammerman's "Root Cause Analysis Handbook".

Am currently reading "Οι ιστορίες του Μπεμτελ το Βάρδος"

Just finished reading The Early Papacy: To the Synod of Chalcedon in 451 by Adrian Fortescue.

I would urge all Christians to read it.

Reading my way through a series of management books at the moment.

Just finished Edward de Bono's six hat theory - or seven hat theory.

Let me see... white hat - information, black hat - critical friend comments, red hat is emotion & feelings, green hat is creativity, yellow hat is lateral thinking and blue hat is overall management stuff.

It was pretty good. I've heard the theory before - and I'm not sure I would use it unless we were pretty stuck - but it was a good read.

Just finished reading "Managing Conflict"

Nothing to do with the Boards of course  :wink:
I deal with a number of ..... strong minded characters .... at work.

How do you persuade someone who earns 4 times what you do to get on and do what they have to do (without resorting to "telling" on them)?
