In the book The First 90 Days, Michael Watkins talks about how the President of the United States gets 100 days to prove himself, but you are given 90 days in your new job. He states that the first three months can be a make or break time. Watching the inaugural yesterday led me back to this book.

I want to share the list of recommended readings listed in the book.
