Marine Corps Professional Reading Program   (MCPRP)     





The Marine Corps Professional Reading Program began as the Commandant's Reading List in 1988, although recommended reading lists have been generated for Marines since the 19th century. Each Commandant since 1988 has placed his personal stamp on the program, but many books remain constant. Great books will always remain a staple of self-paced professional development .
