Book lists for business leaders: 1/14/16

Jan 14, 2016 | Reading Lists

Stephen King says that if you want to be a writer, there are two things you must do: read a lot and write a lot. This is about the “read a lot” part. I include reading lists and book reviews that will help you do business more effectively and write better for business.

In this post I point you to recommendations from Stanford GSB alumni, Suzi McAlpine, and Dan Rockwell’s readers.

Reading recommendations from Stanford GSB alumni entrepreneurs.

From Suzi McAlpine: 3 Standout Leadership Books for 2016

“Regardless of your weather situation, you’ll be needing some insightful books to kick start your Christmas holidays and to set you up for 2016. I read A LOT of books. My bedside table is piled so high, it would give OCD sufferers a heart attack. But there a few books that really stood out to me this year, which I wanted to share with you.”

Wally’s Comment: Suzi lives in New Zealand so her weather situation at Christmas was very different from most of North America.

From Dan Rockwell (the Leadership Freak): Books the “Freaks” Recommend

“I asked Leadership Freak readers for book recommendations from books they read in 2015. I am delighted to pass along their recommendations.”
