I try to be disciplined as opposed to ordering every book I think might be interesting. In some cases, I may read a book only once. For the most part, however, I may re-read in whole or in part, the books I have in my office. I can breeze through some books but some are a 'challenge'; I have to read them a chapter at a time and sometimes with several days in between each chapter.
Rather than try to create some sort of finished list of books, my plan here is simply to share a selection of books I have found to be entertaining and/or thought-provoking.
This list is not complete or in order.
