Abstract:

Officer professional reading programs in Army units are all well- intended, but usually also undirected. The result is that the individual officer reader does not profit from the reading effort as much as heshe might, and the other officers in that unit do not profit from the professionally enhancing discussions which could result from well directed readings. The subject document considers 25 books reknowned for their learning value and relevance to the profession of arms and structures a guide for the military reader. This guide extracts excerpts from these books to help the reader grasp key points briefly discusses the key points to place them in the context of professional military thought and philosophies of leadership, and offers questions which will both challenge the readers personal professional development and also help motivate discussions among officers at professional development sessions. This document is not so much a paper to be read at a sitting as it is a reference document and guide for enhanced reading.
