Book recommendations for business leaders: 1/9/20

Jan 9, 2020 | 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 five end-of-year reading lists

From the Economist: Our books of the year – Word up

“They were about the IRA, Harper Lee’s lost work, rational economics and an Ohio housewife.”

From the London Business School: Your festive reading list

“The books our experts are talking about this holiday season.”

From Greg Satell: The 2019 Digital Tonto Reading List

“I have a strong sense that 2019 will be remembered as a pivotal year. It has been, to a large degree, a year of alternative truths that will need to be resolved in the years ahead. The books that we publish and read will play an important role in establishing which truths we are willing to accept.”

From Michael McKinney: The Best Leadership Books of 2019

“Leadership development is a lifelong process. It is made possible with a quality that we spend a lifetime acquiring: self-awareness. People don’t experience our intentions; they experience our behavior. It is a theme that runs through most of these titles.”

From Strategy+Business: Best Business Books 2019: s+b’s Top Shelf

“Our picks for the best business books of 2019 in seven categories.”

Wally’s Comment: This list also includes links to lists for each of the seven categories.
