in Reading Notes

Books Read in March ’16

I’m changing the way I write about the books I’ve been reading. Though I started these monthly book summaries as a way to find the connection between the books I was reading, I found that method wasn’t have the impact on my reading I expected. Instead of writing a short description of each book, I’ll highlight the book that was most impactful from the previous month, and then briefly mention a quality about the other books that resonated with me, if there is one.

Best March BookThe Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business by Josh Kaufman – This book is a fantastic resource for both budding entrepreneurs and business-minded employees. From his book, I took away valuable information on marketing and business plans which I put into use right away, and earmarked many other sections to refer back to at a later point.

In addition to saving us many tens of thousands of dollars for a potential grad school education, Josh Kaufman also saves us time by compiling excellent books and reading materials for further reading. I’m keeping a Google Doc of his MBA Reading List so I can work through it.
