Personal development is an adventure. In order for us to grow to become the persons we are meant to be we must spend a significant amount of time in self-reflection. I have found that an important part of my journey has been learning about new ideas from others and deciding if and how to incorporate them into my own person. I am an avid reader, so many of these ideas come to me through various books. Some of these books are self-help, or personal development books. Some are novels. Some are academic texts and papers in the areas of psychology. On this page I will share my thoughts on many of the books and papers I read, and welcome your feedback as well. Enjoy!
