I am reading a book now on T. Boone Pickens called the first billion is the hardest.

He was an oil man in Texas for 40 years and then he moved on to energy trading and clean energy like wind and natural gas.

One of his sayings is that it takes the same time to do a small deal as it does a big deal so you might as well do a big deal.

It's a great read so far.

This is my choice book for the GopherHaul Book of the month 8/09
