“If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”

― Harry S. Truman

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was ‘you should read this book’. After taking this advice the first time and finding it so valuable, I read as much as my schedule will allow. The best part about this is that I’ve read a lot of books so you don’t have to! Pocket Ninja Strategies brings all the knowledge of these books to you and your business. (What a time saver!)
