When Tom first read Boyd: The Fighter Pilot Who Changed the Art of War, he launched a campaign to send it to about a hundred friends and relatives as a gift. He'd been discoursing on Boyd's OODA Loop in presentations for years, and the book struck a chord with Tom. He devoted a special presentation entirely to wisdom from the book (download the PPT here). We are happy to add the author of Boyd, Robert Coram, to our roster of Cool Friends. Read the interview to learn more about Mr. Coram and about Colonel Boyd, his engrossing subject.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
