LIST 1
LIST 2
LIST 3

We have found it useful to capture notes of books read on
communications, thinking, professional development, vulnerability
and Learning in files.  It is helpful for recall and for aiding forgetting
(I can forget facts, stories and ideas, since I know where I can find a
file on them.).

Above are links to the first three lists.
