Below are links to review PDFs that others and I write on unique books after we read them. I don’t review every book I read, but ones that others and I highly recommend and that may not be within the normal wheelhouse of professional development or on others’ reading lists. Ultimately, my goal is to inspire you to dig into these quality reads to creatively improve and expand own professional reading program.
Reviews will generally include a non-spoiler summary of the book (to include the reviewer’s thoughts and impressions), top lessons learned, and a few key quotes.
Books are listed in alphabetical order. I will keep newly published reviews separated at the top for easy identification. Keep visiting the list for new book reviews!
