It just grabs you and won't let go

Drcutout_2Hats off to Dick Richards (that's him over there on the right) -- his book "Is Your Genius At Work?" is a finalist in ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Awards!  (details)

This week, I had lunch with Bren and we both agreed that this book is one of those that grabs you someplace deep in your soul/psyche/heart/head and won't let go.  As I mentioned when I reviewed this under the topic "A Quest for Genius" last year, I've had a tough time distilling my Genius down to it's essence.  This has been - simultaneously - the most rewarding, maddening, intriguing, elusive process I can recall.  If you haven't read the book, you should - it'll help you discover so much about yourself.

Congratulations, Dick - you deserve the Gold when they award it in May!  (By the way, sometimes I think my Genius must be "Chasing Genius")
