Love is the Killer App

I saw this book on the shelves last year, and nearly bought it then (if not for the fact that I was already in the midst of reading several other books simultaneously).

But bearing in mind the new-found time I’d be acquiring this month, I thought a little extra reading wouldn’t hurt – eyeballs not included. The book is written by Tim Sanders, Yahoo’s Chief Solutions Officer who says we should share our knowledge, network and compassion with the people we interact with. An excerpt:

At the office, our humanity can be defined as the ability to involve ourselves emotionally in the support of another person’s growth. Whether we celebrate someone’s accomplishments, or show true sympathy for someone’s undoing, it’s our warmth that separates us from the thinking machines.

It’s got a wide mix of ratings at Amazon but on the whole, I dig what this guy is trying to say.
