While listening to The Coaching Habit, the end talks about the authors “Top Shelf” books - the work that has an impact, the work that has meaning and the work that makes a difference. It had me thinking about the books that have had an impact on me. Some of these books took a perspective that instantly annoyed me or went in a direction I was not expecting and by the end had given me another way of understanding that topic; an understanding of how other people may see the world. In my opinion, that type of insight is invaluable and they are scattered throughout my Top Shelf Books.

Instead of making the shelf larger, a new book will have to be able to replace one already there. Older lists can be viewed using the commit log
