Commandant’s Professional Reading List (CPRL)

ALMAR 005/19 The Commandant’s Professional Reading List (CPRL) represents an updated version of those books most pertinent for professional development and critical thinking at each level.

The CPRL is arranged into two sections: “Commandants Choice” and “Grade Levels.” Each Marine shall read a minimum of five books from the “Commandants Choice” or “Grade Level” sections each year. The Grade Level titles are separated into five levels for both enlisted Marines and officers. These levels coincide with specific ranks and Marines should attempt to read all titles within their level prior to proceeding to a higher level.

In addition to the reading list, Marines are highly encouraged to incorporate periodicals into their reading regimens. Scholarly and professionally oriented articles published by independent magazines and journals foster innovation, PME development, critical study of the profession of arms, and serious discussion regarding topics of interest to the Marine Corps. Professional publications inform the debate on current, topical issues of relevance to the Marine Corps and promote the intellectual growth of the individual Marine.
