I love to read and I love to share great books. Below are some of my favorite books that I feel are truly great books. If you would like to see all the books I’ve read, currently reading, and ones I want to read, check me out on Goodreads.
NOTE: Even though this book has a slight business leadership slant, it is still a fantastic read for educators.
From Amazon: “In this absorbing tale, you watch the timeless principles of servant leadership unfold through the story of John Daily, a businessman whose outwardly successful life is spiraling out of control. He is failing miserably in each of his leadership roles as boss, husband, father, and coach. To get his life back on track, he reluctantly attends a weeklong leadership retreat at a remote Benedictine monastery.
“To John’s surprise, the monk leading the seminar is a former business executive and Wall Street legend. Taking John under his wing, the monk guides him to a realization that is simple yet profound: The true foundation of leadership is not power, but authority, which is built upon relationships, love, service, and sacrifice.”
From Amazon: “…science writer Steven Johnson takes on one of the most widely held preconceptions of the postmodern world—the belief that video games, television shows, and other forms of popular entertainment are detrimental to Americans’ cognitive and moral development. [This book] builds a case to the contrary that is engaging, thorough, and ultimately convincing.”
First book I’ve read from Stephen King, and from interviews I read afterward, this isn’t his “typical” style. Highly enjoyable.
Very mature content. It’s only recommended because it is a very good book.
This entire series is fantastic.
Probably my favorite book from this list, though I’ll freely admit, this book isn’t for everybody. If you like War of Warcraft or immersion environments, get this book. If you don’t, you might consider skipping it.
Easily one of my favorite books about the impending robot takeover.
