One of the best assets in the toolkit of every serious entrepreneur, business owner, and freelancer (let alone of a consultant) is a good stack of valuable books. Some books are better than others, but every book has someone to offer you. Even an example of what a bad book is!

I am an avid reader and collector of books in every format available (paperback or digital). And I have the pleasure to write some or even to participate in the creation of others.

As an active author and writer, I have, among other sites, an active involvement in sites like Amazon and GoodReads in order to keep an eye on what going on with books!

In certain books, I have found the basic elements of many arts and crafts while other books teach me many things about the world around me and how I become a better person.

The books I have read are much to blame for the personal growth what I have achieved today, the levels I have reached, the dreams I do, the goals I set and the vision I have.

In this section, I have gathered many books I have found of much value for my life and my work. I have tried to provide a loose categorization but this particular stack is addressed to many disciplines and can solve many problems (or create many new questions to the people know how to answer them).

Please take a look and if you feel that I have omitted something important or just need to tell me a hi, just mail me!

Good reading!
