Holiday Reads

Tommy Bowman1 Comment

My holiday break is always the perfect time to knock out an entire book. Sometimes multiple books. This year as I transitioned from 2012 to 2013 I read the following: Andy Stanley's Deep & Wide - Great read! The first half is the genesis of North Point, how it came to be, Andy's relationship with his father - really interesting stuff. The second half is a really practical look at how NP is a "church that unchurched people love to attend."

Daniel Pink's Drive - In this book, he blows up the myth that people are motivated by "carrots & sticks", or external rewards. Real results are seen when people are intrinsically motivated.

Lastly, I dove back into the Steve Jobs bio. It's my lake house book, so I've only read it at the lake. I'm about 500 pages in to it so far.

 

What about you? Any good reads during your holiday break?
