Below you will find a selection of books I have come across that I found to be interesting and that I want to give attention to. While in some instances, I may not agree with every word written by an author or endorse each one of the ideas presented in a book, I do think that they all offer certain “pearls of wisdom” that you may find to be helpful, informative, or inspiring.
I use links to the Amazon.com website for several reasons. I believe that Amazon provides some of the best prices and service in the industry and they offer media in several different formats, including the electronic book. Amazon also includes assorted reviews from those who have read these books.
