12 BOOKS IN 12 MONTHS

For the past three years, I've challenged myself to read 12 books in 12 months. This has allowed me to connect with people more deeply as I ask for book recommendations.

As a strategist, I often need to condense all of my research and findings into a quick, digestible nugget of information. For each book I read in 2017, I wrote a summary/POV in haiku form.

Look below each image for a mini, poetic book report.
