Mentor - reading list v. 1

I've been spending the last few days putting together a reading list for the possible mentorship that might be happening in early January.
I thought I would post it here. But before you read it, here are a few disclaimers.
First, I realize this is a whole heck of a lot of reading. At least, it looks like it. A lot of this might be trimmed down. I want to believe that this reading is going to be really good, but I also know that the mentoree (is that the right word?) will probably get more out of doing than reading. It's usually like that with most people right? I know it certainly is with me. So the list can easily be cut, and I won't be afraid to cut from it.
Secondly, this is a list of significant things in my past. But I want more from this process than to create another me. I want a person who is me, but way way more. So although this list is my favorites, I'm hoping it catalyzes this person into way more.
Thirdly, the mentoree will be required to write up something after each reading. I know that might be asking a lot too. But there has to be something to cement the ideas, concepts and experience. So thats why there is writing involved in the mentorship. (I'm a pretty big advocate for doing debriefings.. and doing them well, but thats for another post.) So it's not just reading for reading sake, but it's reading for learning and articulating it out.
Ok... here it is
