2008 in Books

Here are the books I read in 2008. Not bad, not bad.

1. Hamster Revolution
System for managing your email.

2. Mind Set!
Very futuristic.

3. The Starfish and The Spider
Good, but I didn't think it was as great as some people thought. I did however appreciate the chapters on hybrids [organizations and teams that were a mix of starfish and spiders]

4. Cities of God: The Real Story of How Christianity Became an Urban Movement and Conquered Rome
Read more like an academic paper than I expected.

5. Please Pass the Butterworms
Love Tim Cahill. Total fun.

6. Whos Your City
Very compelling info about cities and why where you live is such an important decision.

7. Leaving Microsoft to Change the World
Awesome story.

8. The Old Man and the Sea
Picked this up because of our time in Key West.

9. Serving with Eyes Wide Open
Great book to help prep cross cultural teams.

10. Emergence

11. Culture Makers*

12. Seven Habits of Effective Families
Need to finish this one.

13. Three Cups of Tea
Another great story about someone giving up everything to serve.

14. Type Talk [post]
If you love the MBTI, you will LOVE this book.

15. The New Conspirators

16. The Shack
Great story. Depressing and shocking at the beginning though.

17. Uprising [again]

18. Outliers*

19. Organic Community*

20. Wild Goose Chase
Loved it. Batterson nails dreaming, adventure and going again.

21. The Truth About You [post]

Related: 2007 in books
* Will be trying to post some notes on these eventually.
