I have accumulated some favorites over the years. I highly recommend reading them. Enjoy.
- The Season of Life (Jeffrey Marx). This book helped me develop my coaching philosophy and develop my coaching career at a very high level. Looking for a real-life story to relate to? This is the book for you.
- The Last Lecture (Randy Pausch). I learned some serious life lessons in this book. It goes in depth bout how to achieve your childhood dreams and really helped me specify what direction I wanted to take my life.
- 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Stephen Covey). This is one of many Covey books I have read. I consider his work to be life-changing and a must for anyone seeking to be efficient and a valued member of society.
- The Carolina Way (Dean Smith). This book was instrumental in teaching me the proper ways to build relationships with people. If you are looking to improve your ability to communicate with those around you, look no further than this book form the legendary basketball coach.
