    Bog anmeldelse: Kvinde kend dit netværk

    Bog anmeldelse af Kvinde kend dit netværk Det er faktisk allerede længe siden jeg læste Kvinde kend dit netværk af Katja Iversen. Men jeg har allerede anbefalet den til en del (ikke kun kvinder) i min faglige omgangskreds. Nu skal du høre hvorfor. Kvinde kend dit netværk af Katja Iversen “Netværk er et håndværk. Det kræver en del øvelse tilsat lidt nysgerrighed og et drys mod til at overskride egne grænser. Bliver du nervøs undervejs? Sikkert. Er det stadig indsatsen værd? Ja! Du ved det godt: Vi får bedre ideer, når længere og udretter mere, hvis vi arbejder sammen med andre. Vi har brug for nyt input for at tænke…

    Book review: Komedier og dødssynder

    *This book review of Komedier og Dødssynder will be in Danish since the book is only published in Danish* Jeg modtog et anmeldereksemplar fra forlaget Ravnerock mod en ærlig anmeldelse af værket. Boganmeldelse af Komedier og Dødssynder Handling Komedier og Dødssynder er en fagbog, hvori instruktør Kitter Krebs, undersøger de syv dødssynder parret med 7 af Shakespeares komedier. ”Kitter Krebs trækker i sin lille bog interessante paralleller mellem nogle af Shakespeares kendte og mindre kendte komedier og de gamle forestillinger om ”de syv dødssynder”. Selvbedrag og diverse dårskab har altid lokket mennesker på gale veje […] læseren kan selv trække parallellerne videre fra Shakespeare til vores egen tid.” – Lånt…

I will however, review it in English, since I know it’s available in both languages (and others too I assume). Get a copy of The Open Door right here on Book Depository or Amazon [affiliate links] “The Open Door” and Peter Brook…
