Last night Debbie Sardone and I sat down to talk books in her home office in Flower Mound, TX. This is the office Debbie runs 3 businesses and 1 non-profit from. We've all seen many videos she's also filmed in this office and I know I’m not the only one who wondered what books she had behind her!

We had a fantastic Facebook Live where we took 16 books off her shelf and broke down the lessons that we’ve learned and why you should read them too. Over 60 people joined us live across 3 channels and got to comment in real time.

You can watch that replay below, or browse the list full list we’ve created under the video. If you’re like me and don’t enjoy reading much, remember most of these books are available on audio book to be listened to (which is how I do my “reading”).

#1 - Strategic Thinking by Bill Birnbaum - Discussed at 2:45

This book essentially teaches you how to think strategically. He explains what people who practice strategic thinking do in 4 puzzle pieces:

  1. Rather than try to accomplish “everything,” they diligently maintain focus.
  2. They develop and maintain an intimate understanding of their markets – and of their customers within those markets.
  3. They truly care about – thus they nurture – their people.
  4. And they carefully manage their processes.
