Fish!: A Remarkable Way to Boost Morale and Improv&hellip by Stephen C. Lundin
I like having fun and being entertained, and I really liked the ideas in this book. But marketed as a business book?
Let me set some boudries, first of all, to show you how important I think the material is. If this was Doctor Suess- like book, marketed and written with my kids in mind, I would be cool: five stars easlily.

Some highlights.
-Interested in the plight of the poor versus the rich income levels?
-How does drastically education influences income level?
-Did you know there are several indices to measure poverty? The one you use can either over or understate the truly poor.
-How is our productivity growing versus Japan's?
There is much more inside. Highly recommended for anyone interested in economics, politics, and the real… Read more
