Reading List

Books are my conduit into others lives. My mother gave me a copy of Khalil Gibran’s epic masterpeice “The Prophet” when I was fourteen and so began my love affair with reading.  Since then I have not stopped. Books have allowed me to hear a thousand stories, look at the world a thousand different ways and appreciate my life in ways I had never imagined.

Below is a list of books I have read. Some which I have just read and others which I have loved.

Please note – Before you fiction lovers get mad at me this list is heavily based on business/personal development/psychology books.
