My Recommended Reading List

I place a high value on reading. Leaders tend to be readers.   Mark Twain said, “A person who won’t read has no advantage over one who can’t read.”  Below is my recommended reading list. These are some of the books I read and recommend.

Books collection

I say some of the books I recommend, because I estimate the number of books I have read to be in the thousands. There are many fine books that I have not yet added to this list, but I will be expanding it in the days to come. This should at least get you started.

  1. Wow, great list with many a classic.

    I’m really tickled to see William Zinsser’s book here. I lived out of its guidance while I was in grad school. My prose has grown flabbier in the 30 years intervening. Thanks for the reminder. I’m going to pull it off the shelf and set it in front of my writing desk.

  2. Thanks for the list, Ray! Which one of your books in the writing category would you recommend for me as I am building my blog? I’ve read Platform by Michael Hyatt, but I would like to hone my writing skills.
