📚 Recommended reads: #mindfultech library

A photo of a man looking at a book near a small bookshelf.

We recently held our first-ever #mindfultech meetup and we asked our panelists to bring their favorite books about the topics on hand to share with the audience. And now we want to share them with you! 

In true analog spirit, we created an actual browsing library, and the panelists even put notes on some of the books to explain why they chose them.


Books were chosen by (left to right in the picture above) Liza Kindred, founder of Mindful Technology™; Georgia Pettit, Mindful Business Marketing + Media Strategist; and Josh Clark, principal at Big Medium
