What is the one book you think everyone should read?

Building Strong Brands by Dr. David A. Aaker

Tell us something interesting about yourself that your students might not know.

My wife and I have a three-year-old daughter and a bunny. Since my daughter keeps changing the bunny's name every day, I am not sure what his name will be when you see this post. I also love doing many things, but photography is probably my only hobby that has lasted for years.
