Updated for Fall/Winter 2023-2024 by Editor, CMT

My wife often jokes that I read like 3-4 books at a time. It’s true! I love bouncing between a few topics. I think the secret is listening or reading one chapter at a time once or twice a week! That helps you avoid getting stuck. Also, if a book or a chapter is too slow, give yourself permission to skip a few pages. Life is too short and there are too many great books out there to painfully push through.

It’s often said, “The best leaders are readers!” — So, here are some of the titles your peers have mentioned and a couple more books that others we’ve interviewed this year recommend you start page turning. 😉
