Dear Leo,

thanks for sharing with your soul mate and introduced us a new dimension.
I learned the 'terzetto' for the first time. Your beautiful book might be
like the 'comics' in the following quote from Robert Nozick:'If dialogue
and descriptive prose were skimpy, the classic comics was more than made
up for by the narrative force and the vivid pictures.' ( The Harvard Guide
to Influential Books)

Your proposal for manager's reading list is interesting, for 'process and
structure' thread, Dante's journeys might be relevant. If you have time, I
recommend you to read H. A. Simon's interview with OMNI (free in
cyberspace), he commented on Canto XIII : Why None Ever Rose to Equal
Solomon's Wisdom.

Have a nice weekend.
