My Virtual Bookshelf

The books I've read or have attempted to read. Sometimes my short attention span gets the best of me. Le sigh.

By Reid Hoffman (cofounder of #LinkedIn) and Ben Casnocha (award-winning entrepreneur and author).

Want to save the world in 24 hours? This book will tell you how! Great book written by a super awesome guy, Sam Davidson of CoolPeopleCare.org.

50 meals you can nuke in no time! This is an especially good book if you have a tendency to burn things.

There's always room for a good quote, right?

"An uncommon guide to rapid fat-loss, incredible sex, and becoming superhuman." There are a lot of life and body hacks in this book. My favorite is the polyphasic sleep cycle. Who knew you could function on just 2 hours of sleep?! Author: Tim Ferriss #4hourbody

This book reminds me of a close friend. He was going to seminary, and we decided that we would read one chapter each week and call each other to discuss our thoughts at an established time each week. It was a great way to stay in touch with a great friend.

Great book given to me as a gift from a former boss because she knew how much I loved the work (i.e. creating AmeriCorps and making #nationalservice a priority) of Bill Clinton. Now if I could get his signature... ;-)

Yep... another book by John C. Maxwell! Great leadership is built on great relationships. "Winning in every area of life comes from winning with people." -- John C. Maxwell

"We cannot achieve our wildest dreams by remaining who we are." - author, John C. Maxwell

Yes, it's a children's book, but it's quite possibly my most favorite book of all time. The message is simple and can be applied to all aspects of life. If you're ever feeling down or defeated, pull this one off the shelf and give it a read... your mood will be uplifted like magic. :-)

John C. Maxwell is my favorite author on leadership. You'll see quite a few of his titles on my virtual bookshelf. Attitude is the key to success!

In order to work on a team, it's imperative to know the personalities you're working with. This book provides easy to understand explanations of each compass point (as a set of personality traits), its strengths, weaknesses and how the other personalities can best communicate with the others. If you're not sure what you are, there's a quiz that you can take and share with friends! I'm a 'south.' What are you? :-)

This is one of those books that I attempted reading. For me, it served better as a combination drool catcher and makeshift pillow, but don't take my word for it. You can apparently download it for free in the Kindle store!

Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community by Robert D. Putnam
