By Michael Holland –

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.
