I read hundreds of articles and blogs each month, especially some of the ones listed on my blogroll here, but I'm always on the lookout for good books and subscribe to a dozen magazines. Here is a snippet of what's inspired me lately.
Referred to me by my boss, the COO of Bazaarvoice, after she read it. There's a big business book, share-what-you're-reading culture here. This book had so many a-ha moments for me and I look forward to applying a lot of this to my life. This is precisely why I took a job in the first place. It's humbling and rewarding at the same time.
Monocle is probably the dopest magazine in the world and I have to thank my oldest brother, Kahron, for this recommendation years ago. This particular issue has me even more anxious to visit Japan.
I happen to agree with former Def Jam Records president Kevin Liles who said, on the Oprah show no less, that hip hop has done more for race relations in America in the last two decades than anything else. I haven't started reading this one yet, but I'm sure to knock it out next week on a flight to New York.
