    The first person posts the Title and Author of a book.  The next person must either post a Title of another book by the same author or the Title of a book containing at least one of the words in the Title in the last post and add the author's name.

    Example : I post " The 4 Pillars of Leadership - John C Maxwell"

    The next person can post "Developing the Leader Within - John C Maxwell" or any other book by any other author where the title of the book contains any of the words " The 4 Pillars of Leadership"

    I'll start:
