General Ronald Fogleman created the CSAF Professional Reading Program in 1996 to develop a common frame of reference among Air Force members -- officers, enlisted, and civilians -- to help each of us become better, more effective advocates of air and space power. Each CSAF since then has enhanced and continued the Professional Reading Program

The Chief of Staff reading list will provide Airmen of all ranks a guide to further their education and expertise. Professional reading continues to be vital as Airmen maintain the Air Force initiative today and prepare for the future.

This year's CSAF reading list can be found on this dma.mil web page.   Check with your base library to borrow or download these books.
