Tony Robbins is able to captivate a readers attention like no one else. He is larger than life, but is still able to connect with everyone he meets. I’ve interviewed hundreds of successful people, but Tony is truly in a league of his own with his passion and enthusiasm.

The Opposite of Spoiled by Ron Lieber

By Ron Lieber 
Ron Lieber’s book is a personal favorite, and a great roadmap for parents who, well, don’t want spoiled kids.
