Book I read this week: What Every BODY is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent’s Guide to Speed-Reading People by Joe Navarro. This book is fascinating!

Book I’m reading next week: The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg. Yes, I read this book last summer. I read it then out of interest in habits and self improvement. Now I am reading it as I study persuasion.
