I’ve already made my reading list for 2015.
Here are the books I loved the most from 2014. Note these are my favorites… I’ll spare you the full list!

The conversation around habit loops and understand keystone habits is worth the read.

Jeff Shinabarger is a super interesting fellow. This book was equally intriguing.

There is much to learn from the way Apple and Steve interacted. Things to replicate, and things to never, ever do, too.
