  1. that’s a great list. i’m a huge of of “The War of Art” and “Linchpin.”

    i read some classics this year to disengage from my usual fare. I’ve read “Catcher in the Rye” and “The Great Gatsby.”

    But, to amp up for the fall I’m currently reading “Open Leadership” by Charlene Li.

    @timschrader – you’re now on the “watch list” for admitting to reading “Catcher in the Rye”

    Rework – Jason Fried is getting a lot of press and GREAT.

    Trade-Off – Kevin Maney is a winner.

    Selling Jesus – Douglas Webster should be on every pastor’s shelf.

    Sacred Cows Make Great BBQs by Dave Gilpin from Hope City Church in England is a great book. Dave carefully highlights a number of ‘myths’ that flow through 21st Century Christian living, taking the pressure off and leaving you feeling great!
