Lean In By Sheryl Sandberg

“Folks have been critical of Sandberg’s work. It may be because the book provides a kick in the seat of the pants for women wishing to achieve our professional goals and for men who wish to be fully engaged in their children’s lives. She is very observant and refreshingly frank.”

Standing at the Water's Edge By Charles K. Johnson

“Johnson’s book on Straub helped me understand what an incredible giant Gov. Straub was. He doesn’t always get the credit, but it’s his vision and his leadership that enabled Oregon to remain such an amazing state in which to live, work and play.”
