What To Do in The Last Days of 2011?

In the last days of 2011, there are some books and documentaries I highly recommend you read and watch. Since June of 2010, I vowed to read one book a month, which I am proud to say I have done thus far. Most books I have read I found enlightening and well written with only a handful that were slightly disappointing in the quality of the writing and content. With the plethora of books and videos out there, I encourage you to share any books or documentaries that you have discovered and enjoyed as well.

The more knowledge we have the successful we will be as citizens, parents, teachers and consumers. The information is out there. We just have to look for it, share it and learn it.
