In our pre-interview, we asked Don:
What's been your most influential book and why?
I inhale books, so it’s impossible to name a specific one.
What is your favorite productivity tool or resource?
For writing a book, it’s the dictation/transcription feature on iPhones and iPads and the outlining features of Microsoft Word.
