Fall is setting in, ski season is almost here - Arapaho Basin is open and our 15 & 16 year olds are chomping at the bit to strap on the boards. Cycling season is still here, so not so fast boy and girl, dad still has miles to go before we move inside on the rollers.
Fall is also book buying season. At my age its hard to keep up with the teenagers on the slopes. So ski in the morning, have a nice lunch at Ten Mile Station, and read in the afternoon.
Here's my current list:
- Rethinking Performance Management: Beyond Balanced Scorecard, Marshall W. Meter, Cambridge University Press, 2002 - defines a method of performance management (my current interest) that approaches the realities of Balanced Scorecard and the disappointments of its use or misuse.
- State of Denial, Bob Woodward - everyone I know that has read this book has come away very depressed, my turn.
- The Shakespeare Wars: Clashing Scholars, Public Fiascoes, Palace Coups, Ron Rosenbaum, Random House. I asked for this for my birthday. So far its held up to my expectations.
- Absolute Friends, John LeCarre - we're reading this in our "mens" book club. Our spouses have two and maybe three book clubs. Time to get with the program. I'm a dedicated LeCarre fan.
- Mission Song, John LeCarre - the latest, after Absolute Friends.
It's supposed to be a good winter for us - Breckenridge has a good base long before the season opening - eveyone has new skis and the kids have new boots - so we'll out in the back bowls soon enough.
