Thanks for sharing!

Regarding corporate governance I recently came across a great book on the subject:

Great companies, Great nations written by Richard F. Chandler.
The New Zealand Chandler brothers are famous for having turned $ 10 million into a powerful $ 5 billion fund over 20 years.

Chandler's book on corporate governance is available for free download @:
