Actually, "book" is more accurate, for my purposes today.
I could come up with a list of bad choices (like the woman sitting across the aisle from me last week, avidly reading one of those "50 Shades" books. Ma'am, you realize people can read over your shoulder if they want to, right? Including the tween child sitting right behind you. Who was in fact reading over your shoulder. Really, I thought about saying something to you, but I couldn't think of a way to say it without the kid hearing me.) but not today.
Today I'm thinking of a book that is too funny to read on an airplane.
Especially if the people around you are trying to sleep.
And you are wearing earphones so you don't realize how loud you're laughing.
Until people give you grumpy looks.
Not a new book, but new to me. Scott Berkun, the bestselling author of two business books, The Myths of Innovation and Making Things Happen, also wrote a book about his experiences as a professional speaker: Confessions of a Public Speaker. Guess which one I found so funny?
Not going to give any of the stories away. But if you are involved in the speaking business, buy the book. And don't forget to read all the way until the end.
