The authors have produced an extremely important book that raises questions of presidential accountability that remain unanswered today.  Their work is meticulously researched and their conclusions fair, balanced and well-reasoned.  It is hard to fathom how a life so completely and comprehensively examined as FDR's can still yield startling secrets nearly 70 years after his death.   This work sheds an entirely new light on the character and motivations of FDR, as well as those of his inner circle of advisers and family. There is much here to ignite new debates of about how much the American people should know about their President's health and at what point that person should be considered incapacitated and how that determination should be made and - then what?  A fascinating, well-written and apolitical book.  Most highly recommended.

Is there a potential library application for this?

I am sure that there is - this is something that I was thinking about 5 years ago...would have been great to have this option.

This is an excellent book that focuses as much on the processes by which great ideas and great innovators happen as on the history of science in the 18th century and the life of Joseph Priestly.  I found the author's deep analysis completely engrossing and richly rewarding.  Highly recommended.

This needs to be the future direction of Business Analysis in any organization.  Help your stakeholders make better, more informed and more timely decisions.

One of the reasons we're putting iPads in front of kids at our libraries.  The other low vision technology shown here is pretty awesome, too.

Story
Introduction
IT  business analyst / project manager dedicated to getting the maximum value out of every tax dollar spent on technology by the Multnomah County Library system.  I am a passionate defender of intellectual curiosity and promoter of creative selfless expression.

My personal life is a complete mystery, at least to me.  Any clues about my exact whereabouts, whoabouts and whenabouts you can provide will be greatly obliterated.
Bragging rights
Prior to my arrival in the promised land, I spent 11 years wandering in the cultural wilderness that is middle America (they don't call Oklahoma the Great Plain for nothing), in a quest of self-discovery that ultimately turned out to be a waste of time.
