About 800-CEO-READ's Blog
This is the company blog for 800-CEO-READ. Our idea here is to give you an unparalleled resource for business books. We are going feature reviews by Jack Covert. We are going to pull content from mainstream and on-line media. We are going to have authors stop by. And that is only the half of it.

Like any good blog, we are just going to jump in and see what happens.
