http://youtu.be/TNjNuFjn4hM One book that I absolutely love is "The Go-Giver". It is an incredible story that communicates powerful truths through a creative narrative. The creativity that went into the book is what makes the concepts easy to understand and much more powerful than they would be if presented on their own.  I've had the pleasure [...]
