Reading Excerpts

One of the ways I learn best is by highlighting passages in books to help me grasp the core content. I then create book excerpt summaries that recapture this information so that I can easily access this information. It also helps me revisit the material in a more comprehensive manner when I need a refresher. I’ve selected a number of books that I believe reflect important ideas that have a wide variety of professional and personal development uses for anyone in a leadership position.
