What’s Best Next by Matt Perman

Without question, this is the most helpful book I have read in the past year.  Perman is the former director of Desiring God Ministries website, and takes his passion and zeal for God and shows how that helps us to be more productive in whatever line of work God calls us to.   This book is highly recommended whatever your vocation and calling in life.

Death by Meeting by Patrick Lencioni

Who doesn’t enjoy a good fable?  Lencioni’s book explores the tale of a fictional video game company’s CEO who is terrible at running meetings.  With a  rather decent narrative with great principles for all who lead meetings, this book is a great (and quick) read.
