I like to read, and folks frequently ask me what I’m reading. So, here are the books that were on my iPad last year (I only read two real paper books in 2017).
Please note: the fact that I read it only means it sparked and sustained my interest. I’m not endorsing any particular ideas or arguments.
I’m currently reading Scalia Speaks, a collection of speeches and writings by the late, great Supreme Court Justice, and Forged in Crisis: The Power of Courageous Leadership in Turbulent Times by Nancy Koehn.
During 2017, in no particular order:
Servant Leadership: A Journey into the Nature of Legitimate Power and Greatness by Robert Greenleaf
Make Your Bed by William H. McRaven
Dreamland by Sam Quinones
The Grand Strategy of the Byzantine Empire by Edward Luttwak
Great by Choice by Jim Collins
Devil’s Bargain by Joshua Green
The Courage to Teach: Exploring the inner Landscape of a Teacher’s Life by Parker J. Palmer
What Got You Here Won’t Get You There by Marshall Goldsmith
Soul Keeping by John Ortberg
The Fourth Way Hugh Hewitt
The Honest Truth about Dishonesty by Daniel Aierly
And, I love a good thriller/mystery, so books by: Brad Thor, Michael Connelly, Ben Coes, John Sandford, Lee Child, Daniel Silva, CJ Box, Robert Crais and Vince Flynn. Just mind candy when I’m tired of being serious and my telecaster isn’t handy (which happens frequently).
