Learning Never Stops

I'm fortunate to have been taught be some excellent teachers. The best I can do is try to pass on what I can of what they have generously given to me. I've also been fortunate to meet some very successful business people. Their success is no secret. They've stood in front of audiences and explained how they became successful. One of my favorite things to ask is, "what's your favorite book?". I generally get a list and this space is to share a few with you.

The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods by Hank Haney

(suggested by Fred deRoode, founder of PPC Loan)

Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell

(suggested by Randy Valarde, Fred deRoode, several others and required reading in one of my classes)

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner

(suggested by Fred deRoode and myself, the sequel Superfreakonmics is as good or better)

The Death of Common Sense: How Law Is Suffocating America by Philip K. Howard

(an excerpt of this was used in Dr. Doug Schuler’s class my first year at the Jones School of Business Administration at Rice University. I liked it so much that I read the book)
