I’m a professional book junkie. Couple my commute with an Audible account, and I cover quite a bit of ground in short order. In fact, when I get around to it, I want to share some thoughts on a few I’ve recently read, including Give and Take by Adam Grant and Death by Meetings by Patrick Lencioni. Angela shared a list that may keep me busy for a few weeks:
