Back to the Booklearning: Corporations
So, I’ve started back at university for my second year of study for my Master of Business Administration (MBA). I was both surprised and pleased when I found out earlier in the year that I had passed the first year without to much bother. By which I mean, I didn’t have to retake anything.. There was definitely “bother” when it came to my stress levels! (I do find that I set my own bar too high; I am something of a perfectionist. So when I metaphorically drop the ball, I get really frustrated!).
Now we’re back at the hard graft. For me, this means hours and hours with my head stuck in books. And not the nice easy to read kind, the slow laborious facts and figures kind! I must admit that I am quite lucky to be able to read quite fast (I read The Green Mile in less than 2 days, a few years back – 800+ pages). So actually getting through the quantity I have to read isn’t too bad. Remembering all the content, well that’s another story!
The book I’m currently reading is called “The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power” by Joel Bakan. (via Goodreads)
