"Some books leave us free and some books make us free." By Ralph Waldo Emerson


What book(s) you have read or would suggest reading, that has proven invaluable in aiding you in general or in your discovery, growth, vision, family, creativity, or enhancing wisdom?

 President Barack Obama, an avid reader as well as a gifted writer, has a summer reading list published every year. The list sometimes highlights new authors, but more importantly profound thoughts about issues and circumstances both in novel and nonfiction genres. Moreover, many world leaders today and throughout history in business, politics, academia and the sciences are and were inspired by books. A well-known fact, reading is an endeavor that offers many benefits for the health of mind and body.
