Book recommendations for business leaders: 12/27/18

Dec 27, 2018 | 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 four lists of the best business books of 2018.

The 2018 800-CEO-READ Business Book Awards Longlist

“We received over 600 submissions to our annual business book awards this year. It was intellectually invigorating, and incredibly challenging, making our way through that veritable mountain of books. If you can possibly do something similar to that as a company, we’d highly recommend it. The immersion into and exchange of ideas, and literal opening up of different perspectives as we open up those books, has caused us—as it does every year—to reflect on our own business in productive and powerful ways.”
