Greetings.  Thinking of that perfect last minute holiday gift for a special family member, friend, colleague, customer, neighbor or total or partial stranger?  If so, you might make a big hit with Brian Selznick's latest book Wonderstruck.  It's not your typical business book, but a book for kids, businesspeople and entrepreneurs of all ages.  And like his last book, The Invention of Hugo Cabret–featured in this blog last year and now a major motion picture called "Hugo"–Wonderstruck is a book filled with a fascinating story, remarkable illustrations and an amazing spirit of wonder and possibilities.    

But rather than tell you anything about the setting, plot, characters or message, I'll leave it to you to discover the real magic in Selznick's latest tale (or more precisely pair of tales).  Instead I'll simply remind you of the special power of curiosity and stories in the success of all of our companies and organizations!

And leave you to the simple joy of losing yourself in a book…

Wonderstruck-by-Brian-Selznick3

We win in business and in life when we continually unlock the power of our imaginations.  And when we make time to read a book by ourselves or with a friend or colleague.

Cheers!
