Ray’s 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.
