Recommendations from John S. Veitch


This page links to the people I know who've written books or have produced substantial online publications. Most of the links are to LinkedIn or

Gary HamelLinkedIn
Gary Hamel's personal web site.
I purchased "The Future of Management"
A book with lots of challenging ideas for business leaders.
Our companies leech creativity out of people. Business management as it's been practiced in the past is less than human.
Jason AlbaLinkedIn
I met Jason via his excellent little book, "I'm on LinkedIn - Now What?" He started JibberJobber is a personal relationship manager for job seekers
Scott AllenLinkedIn
I have on my desk "The Virtual Handshake - Opening Doors and Closing Deals Online" by David Teten and Scott Allen.
Published in 2005, I was often in contact with Scott on Ryze during the months when the book was being written. Many of the ideas in the book were widely discussed on social networks during this time. That's why this book is so good and why it stands the test of time.

Chris Patten
My knowledge of Chris Patten begins with his work as the last Governor of Hong Kong.
I purchased "What Next? : Surviving in the twenty-first century
It's an overly LONG read, but there is also a wealth of fresh information.
Matthew E MayLinkedIn
I purchased "The Elegant Solution" : Toyota's Formula for Mastering Innovation.
There is now a new book "In Pursuit of Elegance ": Why the Best Ideas Have Something Missing.
Matthew has a web site here.
Joseph Stiglitz
"Making Globalization Work" : The next steps to global justice.
Prof. Stiglitz tells us that the World Bank and the IMF have failed to offer global economic justice. He believes in the global view, but present policies don't make for a good result.
Earl R SmithLinkedIn
"Amazing Pace" : Turbo-Charged Business Development
Earl R Smith has a program for business development that searches for the best expertise and develops strong advisory boards for businesses. Thoughtful and helpful.
Dr Smith has a business web site here.
Steven TylockLinkedIn
Author of "The LinkedIn Personal Trainer"
This is a short bool about how to create a profile on LinkedIn. Sadly this knowledge is badly distributed. Fortunately Steven Tylock's book is availble. You can buy an E-Book copy which is wnat you really need.
George E Vaillant
Adaptation to Life
This is the original publication about the Grant Study. I found this a difficult read but very important to my understanding. (My edition 1977)
Now from Harvard University Press (1998)
Aging Well : Surprising Guideposts to a Happier Life from the Landmark Study of Adult Development
Little, Brown; 1st edition (2002)
That's on my reading list.
Peter M Sengesol
I've been on the SOL email list for many years.
Dr Senge is famous for "The Fifth Discipline: The Art & Practice of the Learning Organization"
I purchased "The Dance of Change: The Challenges to Sustaining Momentum in Learning Organizations"
and more recently "The Necessary Revolution: How individuals and organizations are working together to create a sustainable world."
I think Peter Senge's work is ground breaking, but it's not easy to do.
Eric D Beinhocker
"The Origin of Wealth" : Evolution, Complexity, and the Radical Remaking of Economics
I found this book was a very useful read. Well worth the time.
Dr. Geoff Davies
"Economia" : New economic systems to empower people and support the living world.
This is a strong attempt to conme to grips with economic ideas in the light of our present knowledge about ecology, and earth sciences.
Scott BerkunLinkedIn
"The Myths of Innovation"
I wondered at time if Scott has been reading my web site pages on innovation. He nails many of the problems.
Scott has a web site and a blog here .
Cynthia Barton Rabe
Founder of "Zero-Gravity Thinkers"
"The Innovation Killer" : How What We Know Limits What We Can Imagine -- and What Smart Companies Are Doing About It
I've yet to read this book, but the sub-title states one of the main points I've been making for 10 or more years.
