In pursuit of my self-described Christian Businessman PhD, I started on a quest in early 2010 to read 100 books to increase my knowledge, exposure and intellect. I achieved that goal in late 2012 and now, each year, I strive to read as many books as possible while also listening to Podcasts and reading articles that catch my eye.

Below are the books I have read during 2021
