Books, Books, Books

Reading has become a passion of mine lately. I have been reading business books (regularly) since the beginning of my junior year of college (fall 2003). Now that I am upon graduation I have to move them back to Boston. In that time I have read 48 extracurricular books. Most of them have had some sort of business aspect. Now I get to take them off the shelf, brush away the dust and recollect and reflect about some of the lessons contained in each one.
Here is a list of some of the top books that you shouldn't miss:
Straight From the Gut by Jack Welch
Execution by Larry Bossidy
Adventure Capitalist by Jim Rogers
The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown
The Alchemist by Paul Coehlo
Radical Leap by Steve Farber
Does IT Matter? by Nicholas Carr
There you have it, the top 7 books in the Library of Travis from the past two years. I really wish that I could read faster because there are so many good books out there that I have in my reading queue!
