Bravo, Johnny Bunko!

I finished reading Dan Pink's latest book, Johnny Bunko (check out this WSJ review). I really enjoyed it, perhaps because it all sounded so familiar. In fact, it sounds a lot like my own Radical Elements book, in content and theme and attitude (if I may presume to compare my own work to Mr. Pink's).

Of course, we're both channeling Tom Peters and Dale Cargnegie, and books like this, by definition, almost have to say things like "take chances" and "do stuff that matters." That's what these books are about.

But the thing about Johnny Bunko is the format - a Japanese comic called manga. That's what makes his book really stand out, and I think it really works. Check it out the Johnny Bunko website for a free preview.
