Ankur Shrivastava’s Recommended Books and Resources

I am frequently asked for book recommendations, or make them when I hear someone struggling with an issue that is covered in a book that I have read and took value from.

Because I am making recommendations so often these days, I figured a comprehensive list of the books I have read (and often re-read) and found valuable to me and my business would also be useful to you.
