Great Books to Accompany You on Your Path


Books are our companions, always there when we need them.  Many

get and better with each visit, some are there just at the right moment and that is it....but they are always a gift.  Below is a non-comprehensive list of some of my good friends who have offered sage advice. I am hoping that some will become mutual friends!


May they give you inspiration, insight, courage, and confidence that there are many wayshowers.  You are never alone in your search.

As Mr. Franklin says, "The doors of wisdom are never shut"....
