Starting May 10, but also reading "Nonviolent Communication". Will be interesting to see if one wins out over the other, or if they both get read at the same time!.....May 11, so far reading the two together is working. They seem to compliment each other......May 16, "Nonviolent Communication" won out, I finished it yesterday. Still finding this very interesting tho. (How the King of Thailand released all the prisoners, and started the AIDS epidemic in his country (whoops), and how they are working to eradicate the Guinea worm infestation in Africa (something that has always kinda grossed me out)....and other great tidbits like that. Kind of an eye-opener, how things that seem impossible can be overcome with the right influence!.....May 21, just finished this book. Not sure that it has made me an "instant" influencer....that will certainly take a bit more work on my part....but.....hopefully it is a start!
