Favorite Books From 2016

– Posted in: book review

favorite books for 2016skillsIf you’re looking to 2017 and need ideas for new year’s resolutions, I post ten career-related resolutions in my Forbes column. One of these encourages more reading. I read 36 books in 2016. Some were books I already read but wanted to review – they’re that good. I read only three fiction books, and I plan to read more.
