[snip a bunch of good stuff. . .see the first chapter of "The Age of
Heretics," entitled "Monastics" for an in-depth discussion of what Art was
I'd be amiss if I didn't state that Art Kliener's book "The Age of
Heretics" didn't significantly impact my thinking on this subject. It was
the combination of Art's book and a magazine article I read while waiting

I'd recommend Art's book to anyone truly interested in how our thinking
about business has evolved.
In my opinion it is beneficial to know how we've gotten to where we are,
and where we might be heading in the future. This helps us avoid what
Barry Oshry (of NTL & Power & Leadership Conference) calls "temporal
blindness" where we only see the present, and bypass the story that
brought us to the point we're at.
