Paul_LevyStay tuned.  The audio book version of Goal Play! will be issued soon, joining the paper and Kindle versions.  (That’s me, talking at left!)

Here’s a tease, the foreword written by management guru Edgar Schein, author of Helping, How to offer, give, and receive help.

Goal Play – Edgar Schein Foreword

Meanwhile, I went to the Amazon page for my book Goal Play! recently to see what books people who bought my book also bought.  Some might be expected. Others were a surprise.

I certainly could see the connection with Edgar Schein’s book.  As noted, Ed wrote the foreword to my book.

Likewise, Swen Nater’s You Haven’t Taught Until They Have Learned, based on the coaching philosophy and techniques of John Wooden.  These are remarkably similar to my own, although no coach has been or will be as good as Wooden!

There are several books on health care, like the ones by Marty Makary, Maureen Bisognano, and Leonard Berry.  Lots of shared lessons there.

But the one that tops the list is Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking Fast and Slow.  As one reviewer says, “Kahneman’s book is a must read for anyone interested in either human behavior or investing. He clearly shows that while we like to think of ourselves as rational in our decision making, the truth is we are subject to many biases.”  The parallels to the world of hospitals are obvious.

All in all, I am pleased to be in such good company.
