Usually after I have read a good book, I cannot help but pass along the truths or ideas I have gleaned from it.  On this page you will find a listing of books that I have read that have encouraged me to raise the risk, or the bar, in this thing we call life. Some of these books date back to my high school and college years and some are ones that I have just had the pleasure of reading. So… there should be something here for just about everyone.  I would love to hear your recommendations.
