Tom Peters’ 2012 Reading List

Interesting collection. Much of the predictable “singularity” stuff, starting with Ray Kurzweil, and going through all the apps and devices taking over our lives, but some good stuff in there.

A few for me …

  • The Shareholder Value Myth: How Putting Shareholders First Harms Investors, Corporations, and the Public Lynn Stout
  • The Social Conquest of EarthE.O. Wilson
  • Not For Profit: Why Democracy Needs the HumanitiesMartha Nussbaum

And ironic, posting yesterday, with today’s BBC story about the Cornish school about boys learning good old fashioned manners and etiquette:

  • Choosing Civility: The 25 Rules of Considerate Conduct — P.M. Forni

And a completely unconnected school story … philosophy for reception class education at a Harrow primary school – Socratic dialogue, and league tables that make no odds.
