Book recommendations for business leaders: 2/11/16

Feb 11, 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 there are pointers to lists by the Standord GSB faculty and Aaron Hurst.

From Deborah Petersen: Impact: The Recommended List

“Stanford GSB professors share their reading list for topics related to impact.”

From Theodore Kinni: Aaron Hurst’s Required Reading

“Purpose is Aaron Hurst’s purpose. His career has been devoted to helping people gain more meaning and fulfillment from their work. Furthermore, he believes the quest for purpose among an ever-increasing number of people and organizations is a driving force behind several notable economic developments, including the rising number of tech startups, the maker and local movements, and the sharing and gig economies.”
