ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

Books have significantly changed my life for the better. They have given me the opportunity to sit at the feet of the world’s most brilliant thinkers to learn about business, history, leadership, and communication. I love applying these learnings to my life and my work.

My free time is spent reading loads of books, playing sports with friends, and going out on weekly date nights with my beautiful wife.

My hope is that you and I can share insights on business books through this blog. Feel free to comment with your own thoughts and recommendations. I’d love to hear them!

You’ll notice that I give strong reviews to the vast majority of books I review. That’s because the purpose of this blog is largely to share awesome books–not terrible ones. Just like you, I occasionally read books that I don’t particularly enjoy. However, I don’t think it’s worth your time or mine to post a review just to tear into a book. If you are interested in hearing about business books you may actually enjoy, make yourself at home on this site.

Thanks for checking out my site. I hope you enjoy it and stumble upon useful information to guide your next reading selection.
