Recommended reading

We are regularly asked for a list of books that we recommend on various topics. Here are the ones we have found most helpful. Two caveats:

  1. Recommendations are not blanket endorsements. Read with discernment.
  2. If you are not a new reader, you probably don’t need another book as much as you need the willingness to take action on what you already know.
