New Book, Salt Camp: HerStory, By Ollie Napesni LO30491

Date: 08/21/03

Dear LO List,

I am excited to share with you our venture into the world of publishing
and our opportunity to be involved with the writing of Ollie Napesni's
autobiography. As we discuss many topics on this list related to Learning
Organizations, it came to me that the 7 essentialities of liveness,
sureness, wholeness, fruitfulness, spareness, otherness and openness are
all one in Ms. Napesni's life. After corresponding with Rick to be sure
that we were in tune with the LO theme, we are pleased to communicate the
following with all of you.

Best wishes to you all.
