One of our core values at Okanagan Peak Performance Inc is education. We believe that when we are better educated it helps our clients achieve better results in less time.
But not all our learning is for business. Sometimes we just like to read to relax and expand our minds in other areas.
Many of our clients like to read as well. So we took some time to ask a number of our clients what their favourite books are. And this is the list we came up with. There’s no particular order to the list and the books aren’t separated as fiction or -non.

So my question to you is what books are we missing?
If you were stranded on a deserted island what book would you want to make sure to bring? If a friend could only read one more book during their lifetime, what book should that be? What was the last book you read that you couldn’t put down?
