Leaders are Readers and…

Leaders are readers and readers end up becoming leaders! No shortcut.

So as I say: Happy New Year 2013, I am compelled to share with you my reading list of 2012. These are SOME of the books I read last year (2012) which really inspired, entertained, informed and fascinated me:
