As friends of the office know, I recommend books, and this page gives a few specifics, with links to Amazon.com. Note that many of these are available from local libraries.
The Star Principle by Richard Koch.
Associate with rising stars, and good results will rub off on you.
Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder by Nassim Taleb.
Lots of concepts, perhaps you should read this before you forget that market crashes have happened and will happen.
Business Brilliant by Lewis Schiff.
What did those who built up great wealth actually do?
The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth by James Altucher.
Contrarian and controversial. He accepts that times are changing, so get ready.
Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, a New Translation by Gregory Hays.
Stoicism maintains its good effect.
No Higher Honor: Saving the USS Samuel B. Roberts in the Persian Gulf by Bradley Peniston
I am honored to have known Capt. Paul Rinn, now retired, when we both were at Navy Officer Candidate School in Newport, Rhode Island. His ship was damaged by a mine in the Persian Gulf. The mine was so big that it broke the ship’s keel, but they did not lose a single sailor as they stopped the fire, and stopped the water pouring in. Damage control: don’t give up the ship.
I have in mind starting an email list to send out recommendations from time to time. If you would like to get, or would hate to get, book recommendations let me know.
