Book Recommendations: April 2024

What are you reading? 

For those of you who follow me and read this weekly blog, you know I love giving book reviews and recommendations.  Since I read about a book per week, I am able to do a book review every quarter where I review the most recent batch.  In the #CJJblog this week, it’s that time again where I give you the latest 12 books I have read and a couple quick thoughts on each. If you follow me on Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, I do a book recommendation every Wednesday.

1) Walk on by Stephen Panus:  Had the honor to talk to the author. This is a powerful read about life lessons and the tragedy of a Dad’s perspective on the tragedy of losing a son at age 16.

2) Unleashed Potential by Jeff Forrester:  Had the honor to speak to the author and was a guest on his podcast Pathways to Greatness.  The author is a Life and business coach who  shares great insights and stories to become the best version of yourself.

3) Aspire to Lead by Josh Stamper.  Had the pleasure of talking to the author and appeared on his podcast Aspire to Lead.  The author is a former educational leader who shares wonderful stories and steps to become an educational administrator.
