“Friends of Zenpundit.com who Wrote Books” Post #2: Poetry, War & Business

As the holiday season is here, I thought it would be amusing between now and Christmas to do a series of posts on books by people who have, in some fashion, been friends of ZP by supporting us with links, guest-posts, friendly comments and other intuitive gestures of online association. One keyboard washes the other.

The second installment focuses on Poetry, War and Business:

Stanton Coerr

Rubicon: The Poetry of War 

Colonel Stan Coerr is a combat vet (USMC) of Iraq, a naval aviator, poet and a key organizer of the Boyd & Beyond Conference. He is also intent on becoming a historian, to which I give a hearty thumb’s up!

Terry Barnhart

Creating a Lean R&D System: Lean Principles and Approaches for Pharmaceutical and Research-Based Organizations

Scientist and organizational consultant, Dr. Terry Barnhart, is the originator of “fast learning” strategies for organizational excellence and problem solving. I personally use Terry’s “Critical Question Mapping” strategy with students and elicited amazing results each time.

James Frayne

Cover of Meet the People by James Frayne

Meet the People: Why businesses must engage with public opinion to manage and enhance their reputations

Across the pond, James Frayne is a leading British political and media strategy consultant and former government official. Some of you may remember James from his excellent ( now defunct) political strategy blog Campaign War Room and from his participation in the Reagan Roundtable at Chicago Boyz.

More to come…..

    Is it me, or does Churchill almost always look a bit drunk in his photos? (Manchester estimated that his BAC was rarely, if ever, very low)

    Hi Scott,
    Churchill had champagne and brandy as a staple supplemented liberally with scotch, claret, gin and cigars every day. He saved Western civilization and lived to be ninety and be considered one of the greatest prime ministers in the history of Great Britain and was worth almost $ 5 million pounds at his death, which is roughly about $ 110 million plus in 2013 dollars
    Perhaps we should all drink more like Churchill
