2017 — A Year of Learning in Review

Just reflecting on my effort to continue my education, here are the titles I read / took notes on during 2017. This does not count the numerous presentations, webinars, and documentaries consumed. My reading plan for 2018 is ambitious — 1 book / week. Let’s see how that goes. Sometimes slower is better.
