2005 Book List

Bob FranquizUncategorized

Well, 2005 is a done deal. So here’s the books that I read in ’05. I think reading is really important for every leader. It’s important to also not just read books by people you agree with. That takes the thinking out of reading. I try to throw a couple of zingers in there just to mix it up and keep me on my toes. I don’t know if this will actually help anyone, but here goes…
