Rules of Thumb. 52 truths for winning at business without losing your self. Alan M. Webber. 2009. ISBN 9780061721830. Several reviewers voted this one of the best of 09 books, so I just had to sit down and finally finish it. What if you went through life and made a note of every life lesson you learned, and then boiled it down to 52 short essays? You might have a book like this. A good writer, Webber was a co-founder of Fast Company ( and he reminds you at every opportunity) which was a a great plac for many life lessons. Concise, good plane trip read ( if you can get it on board) this is the type of book you pass onto your children , nieces, nephews, mentees. I savored it and give it a big thumbs up.
