I really like this page of the website. This is the page where I personally get to recommend books and articles. The goal of this page is to provide new and experienced educators and business people with reading material. The reading material I’m recommending isn’t for those who want to do business as usual. The reading material I recommend will cause the reader to think. It may even make the reader to feel a little uncomfortable. However, once the reader is passes the feeling of being uncomfortable, this reading material will change the reader for the better. Having said this, please do not think I know it all. Please feel free to email me and send me the name of books you feel will positively revolutionize how we all communicate with each other, especially those in the field of education and business.

Sincerely,

Dr. Keith L. Anderson
