I read this effort at the suggestion of Chip Brackley, on my iPad, using iBook.

Last Man Standing by Duff McDonald is not at all bad, really. The book, from cover-to-cover is reasonably well written, and highly useful.

Highlights: If you want to understand the banking business beyond what the media offers, and the people that make it work, this is the book to read. And it’s not a vanity piece for a banker on top of his game. This book has specific relevance to anyone who pays taxes in this country or has a bank account.

McDonald apparently had unprecedented access to Dimon and he just have nailed it if you want to understand Mr. Dimon.

Careful reading, combined with reference to Dimon’s “Management Letters” – which he’s renowned for, make this a valuable endeavor.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

what’s all this about?

I can’t explain what that damn tree means - or, if it might stand for something.

However, here I do discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman.

about this particular Theme:

I'll warn you now that Tarski is theme of this blog created by Benedict Eastaugh and Chris Sternal-Johnson. It is named for the logician Alfred Tarski. I'll recommend his papers ‘The Concept of Truth in Formalized Languages’ and ‘On the Concept of Logical Consequence’, both of which can be found in the collection Logic, Semantics, Metamathematics.
