In my quest to read more, I've elected to read the titles on Art of Man's reading list. For the past several months I've been working on the biography of Theodore Roosevelt. It took me months, because well it was a long read. Honestly, the book was almost 800 pages...

Essentialism, pursing less

Have you ever gotten the feeling the universe was trying to tell you something? I felt this way with Greg McKeown's book Essentialism. No, not because it was on the New York Times bestseller list, but because I kept stumbling across it. I caught an Art of Charm...
