Teaching PLI: My Library

I get asked often, "What books do you read to stay current on leadership concepts and presentation techniques?"  Honestly, most of my reading over the past few years has been and will continue to be the 150+ blogs I read daily (Download my subscriptions here - learn more about OPML files here), as well as books via my Kindle for iPhone.  However, the collection listed below is from the previous 20+ years of reading for feeding the brain...

These are pictures of the library in my office.  If you click on any image, a larger version will open.  I have included my favorites for each image...

Of course, I like the Seth books. I started reading "Putting your strengths to work" by Marcus Buckingham which is good. I love Harvey Mackay and John Maxwell. Great post Rhett. The Fast Company since 2002 is awesome!
