The Modern Business Applications of History: How Highly-Effective People Deal with Disruptions
We Know What This Week’s Mystery Guest Does (Business Author), We Just Don’t Know Who He Is
Monday Morning Radio Host Dean Rotbart confesses that he doesn’t know who his guest is on this week’s podcast.
It’s not that Dean doesn’t have a fascinating guest, or that the guest’s book – “Undisrupted: How Highly-Effective People Deal with Disruptions” – isn’t a valuable business read; it’s just that Dean literally does not know who wrote the book.
The author, who lives in The Netherlands [Dean phoned him there], uses the pseudonym John Vespasian and has written ten books.
What Dean also knows is that this week’s mystery guest is a well-read student of global history [think Russian industrialist Savva Mamontov (1841-1918), and 12th-century French statesman, Abbot Suger], and draws excellent insights from bygone eras that we all can apply to our lives today.
So Dean assures us that his guest has plenty of good advice to dispense; he just doesn’t know who he’s talking to.
