Since childhood, I have been an avid reader who is passionate about learning. That explains my appreciation of the formal education I received (BA at Beloit, MA at Yale, and additional graduate study at Chicago, Northwestern, and UCLA) and the fact that I taught English at two boarding schools in New England for 13 years (Kent and St. George’s) before embarking on a business career in public relations and corporate communications.
Years later, I returned to the classroom as an adjunct professor of English at a local community college while continuing my practice as an independent management consultant. Along the way, I began to review books for Amazon’s US, UK, and Canadian websites and blogging at other websites. So I guess you could say that I have several professional passions: to learn, to share what I learn, and to support the work of others whom I hold in high regard. Thus far, I have reviewed more than 3,400 (mostly business) books and interviewed more than 600 thought leaders.
My own education continues and, meanwhile, I am delighted to be able to share the resources that are available to you at this website as well as at other websites to which links are provided.
