Christmas Reading – A Christmas Carol

No apology for repeating this annual Book of the Month for December. It is after all a seasonal classic. While most people know the basic story, this may be from the Muppet version, and many have never read the book itself. Most film and TV versions are much too jolly, other than Alastair Sim’s portrayal seen on Channel 5 yesterday.

Unlike much of Dickens, the narrative is coherent (and short) and the cast small, so it can be fitted in over the holiday.

The business link? This is a book about work/life balance, about work and money not being the only things in life. And the figures of Want and Ignorance also make an appearance. Those are lessons that new people have to learn every year.

You can buy it from Amazon here, but be aware that TUESDAY is the last day for first class delivery orders.

And the Alastair Sim DVD of “Scrooge” here.
