    Awesome list man, thanks for sharing! It’s funny, I’ve read a few lists of some great books to read recently, and there are a few titles that seem to make an appearance on every list (‘Start With Why’ being one of them)!

    I’ll definitely give these a look.

    Hey Chris,

    Thanks for checking. I had been hearing good things about “Start With Why” for a long time then one day decided to give it a shot. It is really good. Not that everything what is written in there is new. But the way it is presented makes a lot of sense. So totally worth an “in zone” read – not something which you can skim and get value.

    And I get your point – and it is true 🙂 same titles popping up on many lists. Looks like I will update this list with some unusual titles or may be create a new one. Will share with you then.

    Good going with “A Year of Productivity”.
