My Library

My library is not large, but it is inspirational.

I am an avid audiobook fan and have been a long-time member of Audible. I find that I just do not have the time to sit and read a paper copy (or e-book). However, when I find a book that is a particularly good listen, I will buy the paper copy for future reference (it is much easier to find information on paper than on an audio file).  I do not have an extensive paper library, but I think it is one that is worth sharing.  As you will note, I do not own many of the “classic” business books.  While these so-called classics have a lot of good information, I find much of it dated and the presentation dry.  As I build this page, I will add in-depth reviews for each book and how it has helped me and can help you.  You can click on the book icon to link to Amazon.com to learn more about the book and purchase it if you wish.  My paper library currently contains the following books (in no particular order):

Rework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson: This is my #1 recommended book.  Not only is it easy to read, but it argues against much of the traditional concepts of business.  We are in a new era and I thin that this book lays the groundwork for how you should think about your business.  I know it helped me a lot.  The short paragraphs and humorous presentation, combined with honest and relevant advice make this book a must-read.   [click here to read my full review]

Why Business People Speak Like Idiots: A Bullfighter’s Guide by Brian Fugere, Chelsea Hardaway, and Jon Warshawsky: Of all the books I have listened to and/or read, Why Business People Speak like Idiots espouses a philosophy that simply rings true in today’s climate. I suggest listening to this book as it is read with such enthusiasm that you just cannot help but smile and realize that the message is truly relevant. [click here to read my full review]
