Denver, CO -- July 31, 2007

Reading The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, by Patrick M. Lencioni. The first sign of dysfunction is absense of trust.

Right now he’s also reading Naked, by David Sedaris, which is a memoir, and a book about Roberto Clemente, a baseball player, though he’s not deep into it yet. Clemente was the most famous Puerto Rican baseball player who perished while transporting humanitarian goods to Nicaragua after the earthquake in the early 70s.

A memorable book? The Fountainhead, by Ayn Rand. He's an architect, and the story conveys attitudes and qualities he respects and personally seeks (at times) to structure the manner in which he conducts himself, yet it presents an individual he would never want to be.

What’s great about Denver? It’s a young city and is becoming progressive. Cow town, he said, is being challenged.
