1 thought on “20 Book Gifts for Dad”

  1. What a good book list! I personally liked the book Steve Jobs. This is a book for everyone, for sure it is suitable for our dad. My dad is an entrepreneur for sure he knew who is Steve Jobs but his success story did not know by everyone. Most people know only about he is the founder of Apple but that's all. I liked other books as well. Thanks for the good list.
