Summer Reading


A man may as well expect to grow stronger by always eating and wiser by always reading.

–Jeremy Collier

I thought this week I would send out some suggested summer reading. School is winding down and summer is a great time to read some books that will help you develop. A lot of time and money is spent on training and travelling to events. For a few dollars you can do something else that can  help you improve drastically.
These books are all a little different. Some things will work for you and be of interest to you, and some won’t. One thing is certain. If you read all of these books you will empower yourself to become a better player. That is one thing I can guarantee.
I have included a link to them on Amazon where you can buy them, sometimes used copies, for a very small amount. Enjoy!

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.
