On Friday a large box arrived with Amazon written on it! Nope, it wasn’t a shipment containing anything exotic from the South American jungle … it contained my next shipment of books. A present to myself.

So, I have updated my Bookshelf widget (see toward the bottom of the right side bar) and added the books to my Amazon Wishlist – click here to get the direct links to the texts.

So, here’s what I’m now reading …

Improv Wisdom by Patricia Madson – recommended by the tribe at the Applied Improv Network

The Element by Sir Ken Robinson – can’t wait to get into this one!

Brain Rules by Dr John Medina – this one reconnects me back to Neuro-Psych lectures at Uni.

Everything’s an Offer by Robert Pynton – recommended by Viv and Johnnie and the best Improv book they have read

Slide:ology by Nancy Durate – Recommended by another favourite author/blogger/presenter Garr Reynolds over at Presentation Zen.

And here’s a book on loan from Viv McWaters’ bookshelf

Tribes by Seth Godin – reading this one at the moment and enjoying the simple, straight forward language

I’ll sum up each book in a picture over the next few months.

    Hi Geoff
    You will be busy!! I’ve just finished reading ‘the Element’, the much awaited book by Ken Robinson. It was worth waiting for.

    I use Amazon a lot too, I like the idea of buying second hand books where possible. I think I will be looking at Amazon in the UK though because of the current exchange rates!!

    Hi Geoff,

    Thanks for these great book recommendations – I knew about Ken Robinson and Seth Godin but the books on improvisation are a real discovery for me! Can’t wait to check them out.

    Also, I live in France and have family in Victoria so our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
