One of the things I would like to do with this Blog is have a “Book of the Month” that I believe is worth your time to read.

The first book on this list is an excellent short book called: The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawade.

If you have ever felt the need to get more organized and if you have ever been in one of my classes, you know I am a firm believer in the checklist principle.

This book is great for college students, emergency managers and anyone aspiring to lead.

If you have read it, or if you decide to read it, drop my an email at to let me know your thoughts.
