Daily Thoughts 11/14/2009

I have been reading some more of Working With Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman. It describes how emotional self mastery is more important than pure technical skills among engineers and executives. It is easy to find people who can do the job. It is harder to find people who can lead and work in teams.

I took a few minutes to look through Kirtas Books which offers digitization services for books at a cost of around $30 per book. They have an excellent and wide variety of older titles which they are selling as downloads, many for around $1.95 each for the digital part. They also offer trade paperback and hardcover versions of titles.

Chris Brogan has a new book out Trust agents : using the web to build influence, improve reputation, and earn trust. It has quite a few ideas on how to use the web to build influence.
