Reading is a passion of mine. My mother still tells anyone who would listen, how I would never sit to eat without a book in hand. Here are some of the books that I found meaningful in conducting my life.  I hope you share in the joy of these books. If you are a friend or family and if you cannot get access to them, send me a message.

The most detailed and evidence based book about some countries fail and some countries flourish.  Written by two economists.   The story about the Venetian Merchants is alone worth the price of the book.
