Hitting the right notes
The book “Rhythms of the Game: The Link Between Musical and Athletic Performance,” written by former Yankee Bernie Williams and musician friends Dave Gluck and Bob Thompson, is “a grab bag of inspiration, self-help, history and anecdotes that focus on the kinship of baseball and music.”

Jonathan Safran Foer’s new book, Tree of Codes, that crosses literature with visual art.

Love the execution of book as sculptural object. 

I suspect this is one book that may not translate well to an iPad or another e-reader. ;)

I wonder if Rob Walker (whose insightful posts can be found at Murketing.tumblr.com, Unconsumption.tumblr.com, Murketing.com, @notrobwalker, and @significobs, among other places) is aware that this New York Times review of his book, “Buying In: The Secret Dialogue Between What We Buy and Who We Are,” is making the rounds on Tumblr.

Reason #491 why I love the Internet: availability of clips from the Seinfeld coffee-table book episode.

(The subject of said episode was a topic of lunch discussion today. Now this is research, people.)

Social media 101: Corporations cultivating communities

I had the good fortune of getting my hands on an advance copy of Joel Postman’s (@jpostman) book SocialCorp: Social Media Goes Corporate. As someone who has worked most recently at a small company, I find Joel’s examples and case studies of larger companies’ SM strategies and initiatives helpful as models. If you’re in need of educating colleagues — or yourself — about the benefits of jumping on the SM bandwagon, you’ll benefit from reading SocialCorp. Employees of public and private companies of all sizes, in addition to staff and board members of non-profit organizations, will glean much useful information from the book.
