Inspiration comes from many avenues. In our WISE Bookshelf feature, members share some of the titles that have encouraged them to think outside of the box, try a new approach, dig down deep for the confidence they needed to make that big decision or simply allowed them a reprieve from the daily grind. Happy reading!


One Hundred Years of Solitude

Author: Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Genre: Fiction


[This is my favorite book] probably for no other reason than it was such a beautiful story. I learned more from books about how to be the kind of person that I think I want to be, versus how to be the kind of business person [that one should be]. I don’t see that there’s’ a real distinction between the two.
