Shane’s Reading List

Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't I have an absolute passion for reading. Books on business, people, psychology, innovation, spirituality and anything that relates to growing myself personally. I often get book recommendations and often forget them a few days later. So I decided to start a list here, where I can’t loose it. Here are the books I want to read, and, eventually, the books I have read and what I thought about them:

Books I am Reading Right Now

  • The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It
