Design Thinking: A Guide to Creative Problem Solving for Everyone

This book, surprisingly, provided new ways for me to address leadership challenges.

Educating Children with Autism (BCYF 25th Anniversary)

Yes, it's true. I've read this book three times since I first obtained it back in 2004. Autism was a serious weakness in my game at that point so I knew that I had to improve my knowledge base.

Emotions, Decision-Making and Mass Atrocities
