2020 Summer Reading List

It's been said, "you are what you are and who you are because of what has gone into your mind. You can change what and who you are by changing what goes into your mind". - Zig Zigler 


This summer spend some time and "sharpen the saw" by reading something positive, powerful and useful for your life. I love to read and below is my suggested summer reading list which I have either completed or I am in the process of reading now.


I hope you find one or more of these books to lead to powerful change for you and those who you love most. 



Love Your Enemies by Author C. Brooks 


Divisive politicians. Screaming heads on television. Angry campus activists. Twitter trolls. Today in America, there is an “outrage industrial complex” that prospers by setting American against American, creating a “culture of contempt”—the habit of seeing people who disagree with us not as merely incorrect, but as worthless and defective. Maybe, like more than nine out of ten Americans, you dislike it. But hey, either you play along, or you’ll be left behind, right? Wrong.

In Love Your Enemies, the New York Times bestselling author and social scientist Arthur C. Brooks shows that abuse and outrage are not the right formula for lasting success. Brooks blends cutting-edge behavioral research, ancient wisdom, and a decade of experience of experience leading one of America’s top policy think tanks in a work that offers a better way to lead based on bridging divides and mending relationships.
