Speaking of book lists, my production manager, Isaac Smith, put together a short list of excellent historical stories over on The Focus Course blog:
With the overwhelming noise we’re faced with on a daily basis, I’ve found more than ever the need for high quality content.
And by “high quality” I mean content that has been thoroughly and thoughtfully constructed. (Usually not found on Twitter.)
While there are a few mediums that would qualify, physical books are my preferred format. The ideas presented in a book must stand the test of rigorous rounds of scrutiny and editing, whereas the waterfall of commotion found on Twitter could be anything from angry rants of some poor soul stuck in rush hour traffic or an original idea whilst sitting on the throne of glory.
The bottom line is social feeds most generally present fast food ideas, while books offer well-prepared meals.
