Book Review - 'Australia's Muslim Cameleers' Pioneers of the Inland 1860's - 1930's

with terms

Written by Philip Jones & Anna Kenny, I came across this book by chance in a second hand book shop in Strathalbyn.
A companion publication to the 'Australia's Muslim Cameleers' exhibition in the South Australian Museum it is a way for others to discover this much unreported aspect of our countries history.
Based around historical records, artefacts and the memories of decendants it provides a sense of the contribution made by these people and how they maintained their faith and their links to their culture in a remote and strange land for them.

Audio Book Review - 'Anything you want' by Derek Sivers.

There was something about this story that seemed obvious, impossible and yet what a great business life model.
What at first impression seemed like a story where everything just fell into place really came upon reflection, to be a story about someone who built a self propelling business by staying true to a series of core principles.

Book Review - ' the mesh ' by Lisa Gansky. Why the future of business is sharing!

with terms

There is something about this book that makes you think ' ah, thats what is happening ' and gives you a guide to how some have done it and how others could do it.
Published in 2010 by Portfolio Penguin, I was made aware of this book by a reference to it by Seth Godin.
Linda sees the Mesh design as Durable, Flexible, Reparable and Sustainable and in many ways these businesses develop into something that their users drive by thinking aloud (very aloud & very quickly).

Book Review - Turning Green 'The Journey of the Green Sugar Merchant' by Chris Tan

I enjoyed this book  because in so many ways, it is the complete package. A mixture of packaging, graphics and then the writing that tells a story about a journey.
