Book Reviews

Books are expensive, not just in terms of money, but also in the time it takes to read them. I try to find out as much as I can about a book before spending money buying it and time reading it. Amazon.com is my preferred online source for books for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is their used book option.  It's a heck of a lot cheaper than buying new, even with the additional cost of shipping.

Here are a few books I recommend to people who have a natural curiosity about the world, especially as it applies to jobs, work, life and happiness. I'll add more titles from time to time, and I'd welcome your thoughts, suggestions and contributions.
