Mid-Week Reads is Back!

Sorry for being away from the blog: I had a bad cold, and then I've been buried under work. Oh well. (Also, I've read like a hundred Agatha Christies (joking, more like fifty) in the last few weeks, since I didn't have the energy to do much else when I wasn't working).


I loved reading this analysis of why Porter's Five Forces model doesn't work. As someone who's studied the model, used it for analysis for clients (a long time ago), but ultimately didn't find it very practical, I found this fascinating.

I also liked Aparna's piece about women in Indian ads.

This is awesome.

How much sleep do you really need. (Short answer: it depends.)

Why does Doctor Barbie cost twice as much as Magician Barbie?

Now for what I've been writing. I enjoyed this fun little book, Jana Bibi's Excellent Fortunes.

Over on my business blog, I share my favorite business books. Name yours!
