What’s in My Briefcase these Days?


Like many of you, I’m sure, I usually try to read a few books simultaneously.

I keep the current few books in my computer briefcase and basically take them with me everywhere I go. Even though I may not read them—I frequently see them and anticipate the next time I can get to them again!

Occasionally, I’ll find a title that captivates me to the point that I have to finish it with single-eyed attention. More often, I’m bouncing back between two or three books over time.

On average, I’m probably completing a book each week.


Recently, one of the books I’ve enjoyed is Tools of Titans, by Tim Ferriss. This book required more time—given its sheer size, and the fact that once finished, I had to go back and re-read the sections I marked, highlighted, underlined, and notated!

Tools of Titans is a tome that leaves no room in the briefcase for any other books! It is a veritable cornucopia of wisdom and practical advice categorized along Ben Franklin’s classifications of “healthy, wealthy, and wise”. Each section records Tim Ferriss interviews with the best and brightest in the worlds of health, business, and philosophy.

Hands-down, one of my top 10 most interesting books, ever!
