I know this has been brought up multiple times in the past but I am looking for some new reading material. Outside of the pizza magazines, and of couse the DOL laws gregster is posting, what are some of your favorite books and magazines?
Hopefully this is okay. I wasn’t sure if you only wanted business related reading or not… but I think it helps to unplug sometimes Paul. Believe it or not… reading PMQ is unplugging for me. On that note though, I read lots of James Patterson books.
How to Get Rich by Felix Dennis (Sounds corny but was an entertaining read by someone who did it, not just preach it)
The Secret Formulas of the Wizard of Ads… http://www.amazon.com/Secret-Formulas-Wizard-Ads-Turning/dp/1885167393

Great list there Pizzaguy. Most of those titles are in my library as well.
Here is a list of the books I recommend:
Waiter Rant(Both the book and the blog)
The 4 Hour Work Week - Tim Ferris
Change the Channel - Michael Masterson
Anything by Harvey Mackay
How to Win Friends and Influence People - Dale Caenegie
The Black Book - Kamron Karrington
Before You Leap - by Kermit the Frog
And my all time favorite book:
Snow Crash - Neil Stephenson
No better reading than a story about a samurai sword wielding pizza delivery driver in the not too distant future where pizza delivery drivers are the kings of the road, and guys like gregster wouldn’t survive 5 minutes.
