My Reading List as a Product Manager, Entrepreneur, and Runner

Buying a Kindle has completely transformed me to be an avid reader

Reading on a long flight or by the pool at a resort on vacation when it was easy to remember to bring a book was usually the extent of my reading time. But that all changed immediately after buying a Kindle.

Prior to that purchase I would occasionally enjoy a good SciFi novel (anything by Arthur C Clarke), or pick up any of the NY Times best sellers that were available before boarding a flight. But having hundreds of books to choose from at a time is a great substitute for scrolling through the internet in my free time.

The books listed, though not exhaustive, have had significant impact on my life. Whether it be working towards becoming a better product manager, taking an entrepreneurial leap, or any journey I have taken for self improvement. I am limiting this list to non-fiction books separated into the following categories: Product Management, Business, and Self Improvement
