Something to relieve travel fatigue
Consultants, by definition, travel. This can be either a chore or if framed in the right way, an opportunity to explore (at least the airport->rental car->client office->hotel). If you do travel, you may find this book by John Oldale a delight.
It’s unlike any other travel/trivia book that I’ve read. It’s designed and laid out nicely (and uniquely) and chock full of facts/figures/insights/quotes that should keep even the most jaded traveler entertained.
At a minimum it may give you some (very good) ammunition for small talk. Highly recommended. I can’t put it down.
