Bauer 1X Composite Stick Review

The Bauer Vapor 1X composite stick is the premier stick in this line of hockey sticks.

According to the manufacturer, the Vapor 1X is “the ideal stick for the crafty player that excels in puck handling and quick-release shots”.

This is not the stick a first-time hockey player needs to go out and purchase. Players have described this composite stick as having the best puck feel available in a composite blade. It is also highly regarded as having the best low kick release on the market. The stick features the new Quick Release Technology which is the new and aggressive taper design. This design is intended to optimize load and recoil energy in the lower part of the shaft enabling a player to get shots off as quickly as possible and it does not disappoint. Players have reported that this technology takes a bit of getting used to at first, but once they became comfortable with it, it was absolutely amazing. The taper is lower than the Apx2 which makes it the perfect stick for quick motion slap shots.

You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life

There are three word to describe this book: crass, vulgar and good.

Self-help books are usually not a funny read but this book is one of the funniest, enlightning and most inspiring book I have ever read.

The language in the book is direct and often coarse but the story goes directly to the heart and stick there.

This book will make you both angry and happy while reading it and when you are finished you will see your life in a new light.

If you read a lot of self-help books in the past then you will learn nothing new from this one, except perhaps that you are a total badass!

The book is written by Jen Sincero.

The Great Disruption: How business is coping with turbulent times

I’m not familiar with the Schumpeter column in The Economist so reading this book was new and a real wake-up call for me. The columns are organized into themes and depending on how much time you have you can read one column or several, you will not get “lost”.

It’s been a good read on the metro, bus or train the past months and I have enjoyed every moment of it. After six months sharing space in my backpack with the laptop, the book is looking a bit worn but it surely deserves a place on the bookshelf at home along other favorites!

The book describes the forces that are disrupting today’s business world, who are the winner and losers, changes to classic management problems and my favorite, what the future holds for companies and society.
