Joseph’s Book Recommendations

An age-old quote says “Not all readers are leaders but all leaders are readers.” I truly believe this. I’ve found the wisdom of ages contained within books.

Books will stretch you. They will challenge you. They will open your mind to new possibilities.

This is why I wanted to share a list of books I would recommend to all leaders. It’s going to be a varied list as I believe you can learn from a variety of sources. Regardless of the variety, the list of books will help you become a better leader.
