My Favorite Books I Managed to Read Last Year

Fire in the Ashes by Jonathan Kozol (audio version / read by Keythe Farley). It made me cry and want to do something about poverty in America.

The Magus by John Fowles. Blew my mind and made me want to re-read Shakespeare.

Backbone by David H. Wagner. A self-help book for men that’s not cheesey. A must read!

The Phoenix Generation by Kingsley L. Dennis. Gives me hope that these tough times we’re going through have a deeper purpose.

Leadership Landscapes by James P. Keen. A business book that I actually read from cover to cover and that I have referred to again and again.

Understanding Human Design by Karen Curry. She makes a really complex subject, well, understandable.

Complexity by M. Mitchell Waldrop. Taught me how the universe actually works. Practical applications are everywhere. The science of hope and the hope of science.

& Sons by David Gilbert. A well-told novel with some very nice turns of phrase.

Books I’m still working on because I don’t want them to end:

The Gene Keys by Richard Rudd

Revolution in The Head by Ian MacDonald

In the Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco

The Law of Light by Lars Muhl

Mindfulness by Ellen Langer
