MY TOP BOOKS OF 2017
Another year of giving up fantasy football/sports radio during my commute to read/listen to more books instead. Made it through 29 this year. *Asterisks are my top recommendations with the rest in descending order of enjoyment. Note: Ferris’ book arguably belongs alongside the great sacred texts in terms of practical wisdoms per page.
