From the Author

In 2007, I started writing a newsletter called Food for Thought. My intent was to share provocative ideas that might be controversial. I wanted to make sure I provided both sides of an issue. It was intended to be a bite-sized idea that could be captured in an email and might be of interest to corporate executives. It went to about a hundred executives. I never imagined that it would turn into a monthly mailing that would last almost a decade and go to more than 5,000 recipients. No doubt, coming up with a bite-sized, provocative and controversial idea to share every month has not been without its challenges. But it also sparked many new ideas. I cannot say I succeeded to be provocative with all of them. But I did get there with some of them. With more than 85 ideas discussed over that time period, I thought it would be useful to compile them into a collection.

The underlying theme of all of the articles is to be provocative and controversial. I hope you find them so.
