Books are usually the most nourishing diet of information we consume, but they’re not all created equal. This page presents the best books from the many hundreds I’ve read. (I read 5-15 books a month, depending on what I’m up to.)
I’ve chosen the top books based on what’s going to give you the greatest summary of the field or give you key information that you can put into practice. I’ve favored accessibility over profundity in the top books because a seminal but too-dense-to-get-into book isn’t going to do you much good.
This list will be updated every quarter to include new books and topics, so check back often on the topics you love most. The links go to Amazon so you can see reader reviews and learn more about the books. If you purchase the books from Amazon, we get a small commission; thanks for supporting the work it takes to provide this resource to our community.
