Key influences since my last published reading list. I got a new boss in Q4 (Pro Tip: read the books your boss says he/she likes). Continued reading about startup life, WWII European Theater, digging into the Italian campaign again through the eyes of Lucian Truscott and George Marshall, who I learned had a house in Leesburg, VA. A small world. Still haven’t finished most of these.
