Reading List

We haven’t read all of these books, and of course some are better than others. Some are for children; some are for those who have children; some are gender-specific or minority-specific; some are examples of leaders in business, exploration, adventure . . . all are intended for people to better understand and manage their own lives. We’re sharing this list to show you the possibilities of GETTING INFO from people who have thought about role models long and hard enough to write a book about it. Maybe it’s a good book, maybe it’s not – look at the reviews and decide for yourself.
BTW, they're in no particular order other than (sort of) alphabetical.
If you suggest a good role model book to us, we’ll credit you by name (and mention your blog or biz)!
