A list of books you should read...

When I was younger I often heard phrases such as "Knowledge is power" and "A mind is a terrible thing to waste". Back then I didn't fully understand the depth of those statements. As I went further into life and my professional career I began studying and reading avidly. Studying those great minds helped to spark creativity in me like I had never experienced. 

Here is a running list of books that I've read (and are in the process of reading) that have made me a better business man, performance/fitness professional and friend. I hope you will take time to read one or more of the titles.
