What's on your reading list?

What are you reading?  Need a recommendation?  Need motivation?

"The problem with being too busy to read is that you learn by experience (or by your men’s experience), i.e. the hard way. By reading, you learn through others’ experiences, generally a better way to do business, especially in our line of work where the consequences of incompetence are so final for young men." ~ Gen. James Mattis1

In a recent CNO's Rapid Innovation Cell (CRIC) Podcast, Mario Vulcano, instructor for our Information Warfare Basic Course (IWBC) was interviewed on a few topics centering around an endeavor titled, "Investing in Tomorrow's Leaders, Today".

Listen to the full podcast at the bottom off this post.

In the interview, Mr. Vulcano talks about a reading list that he has compiled from his own bookshelf finds in addition to the recommendations of many of our leaders.  The following, is that list:

While the links above are to the books available through Amazon, you can find many of these books, as mentioned in the podcast, through the Navy's General Library Program2, which is an AMAZING resource for e-books and audio books alike.

Great things are happening at IWBC.  Information Warfare Officers are getting a great beginning to their career in the community.  Give the full podcast3 a listen, it is worth your time.
