    I’m glad someone is finally acknowledging ‘Blue Ocean Strategy.’ I thought the concepts in this book were right up there with ‘The Tipping Point,’ but not as easily readable. The implications in this book for churches are amazing…

    Hey, another good business book is named, ironically, “Good Business.” It’s written by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Wow, don’t ask me to spell that again. Read it, you’ll love it…
