message 20: by Reene (last edited Nov 16, 2016 01:41PM) (new)

Reene Aurelia I don't think he ever spoke in depth about his thoughts on the books he read, but he did say he likes to read what build generals and what made countries, so if it revolves around those topics odds are he would have read it

When he said thoughts of a general in the lost vibe interview. Could he have meant Thoughts on General and Partial Inoculations, and does anybody know which book he read about the hollywood stuff?


message 21: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Ha Amazing! Thank you for putting this list together :)

You'll Never Eat Lunch In This Town Again is the Hollywood book he mentioned in the Vibe Interview...he just mispronounced it.


message 23: by Petar (new)

Petar Vukotic When he said thoughts of a general in the lost vibe interview. Could he have meant Thoughts on General and Partial Inoculations..."

He was referring to a specific section of the book entitled, "Mastering the Art of War" by Zhuge Liang. It starts under the heading "Part One, The Way of the General: Essay on Leadership and Crisis Management."
