About Me

Reading has the power to stir our souls and to create perspective. In our busy lives it can be difficult to find time to read. I think it’s essential we continue to make the time. Below is a list I have started to compile, at this time it is nowhere near complete. As I have time I will continue to update this page.

Recommended Books

Lord of the Flies: I know this is a weird recommendation. Most people I talk to hated this book when they read it in high school. But I loved the interaction among the characters. It spoke to me and my life with my friends. It was the first book I had ever read that had such depth of character and could clearly outline the interactions of people so well.

First Break All The Rules: This was a compelling book based on volumes of research and how to have a successful team. If you want to learn about the basics of leadership based on actual research, this is a great place to start.

The Way of Kings: While this is a fictional fantasy story, the way in which Brandon Sanderson is able to portray the difficulty in getting others to follow a leader is amazing. There are many parallels that can be drawn in real life and leadership.
