Career Coaching by Former Fortune 500 Recruiters

Book recommendation: Clay Shirky’s Here Comes Everybody

This is a good mind-stretching book.  Birthday Paradox, Prisoner’s Dilemma, flash mobs, forming a Stay at Home Mom’s group.  There’s a lot of diversity in the book but it all comes together under its aptly named subtitle:  The Power of Organizing Without Organizations.  Shirky gives interesting examples where technology has been used to bring people and ideas together.  As an entrepreneur, it made me think twice about the ideal size of a business.

If you like this type of light business plus fun examples, you will also like Ori Brafman’s Starfish and the Spider.  If you can just read one, I pick Starfish.
