"The Torch and the Dagger: How the Air Force is Following Enron, AIG, and Goldman Sachs"

This is the tentative title of a book I have been working on for a bit now. It's something I plan on publishing once I get promoted to the rank of "civilian" which may be sooner rather than later. It's heavily laden with personal experiences and a bit autobiographical in nature but I'm hoping that with some more research it will be something useful. I think it will and I've got some wonderful people helping me who are much more talented than I am. I won't be on the Daily Show or the Colbert Report anytime soon, but I'll get there eventually. Maybe.

Yes, the writing will be better than what you find on this blog...

BTW, I'm still seeking release from Air University on my ACSC thesis entitled, The Smartest Guys in the Room and the Best of the Best: Max Performing Air Force Culture. Hopefully that will be out soon as it deals with the same theme but in a less detailed or personal way.
