It goes without saying that well read men often have superior intellect in comparison to men who flirt with the funny pages. When I took writing from a pastime to a career one piece of advice I got that stuck with me was to just keep reading.Read everything, regardless of what it’s about. The stack of magazines in my bathroom and the book shelves in my home and office are proof of that advice come alive. I’ve always been a reader, and granted my tastes have changed over the years, there are certain books that stick out as the best reading experiences I’ve ever had. There are millions of published books for sale at any given time. So many that it would be impossible to read them all. That’s why I’ve compiled a list of what I think are the top thirty books that every man must read, regardless of whether you read a lot or a little.
