@John - with summer starting, I thought of the days when I would read ten per week. Those were great times. Glad this got you going. Reading is such a wonderfully focusing activity.

@Dan - I saw recently someone talk about the term "free agent" and thought they must not know you talked about that extensively in your first book. Thank you for giving us so much to think about.

@Carolyn Ann - now it's me with a pen and paper. Look at all your suggestions! I admit that nobody replaces Rilke, Dante, and many of the great poets when it comes to reflecting on life and connection. As you guessed, this was the other kind of list, more on the business side of things.

@L. McAbee - I'm familiar with Goleman and Charan. I'll need to take a look at the other recommendations you made. Thank you.

@Marco - haven't gotten around to reading that, yet.

I suppose that another great and interesting book, that personally has changed my life, is "Free" ( Called "Gratis" in the italian version )about Chris Anderson!

Great list! I've read some and now can't wait to read the others. My area of work is in Leadership Development and my favorites based on your criteria of where I "wrote furiously in the margins" include: Primal Leadership by Dan Goleman, The Leadership Pipeline by Ram Charan, The Leadership Challenge by Kouzes and Posner, and Performance Consulting by Robinson.
