Book recommendations for business leaders: 5/5/16

May 5, 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 Michael McKinney’s “First Look: Leadership Books for May 2016” and lists from Judith Rodin and The Real Deal.

From Theodore Kinni: Judith Rodin’s Required Reading

“In August 2005, a few months after Judith Rodin was named the first female president of the Rockefeller Foundation, Hurricane Katrina slammed into the U.S. Gulf Coast. In the days, months, and years that followed, the critical importance of resilience — the ability to prepare for systemic disruptions, survive them, and transform them into opportunities for growth — became evident.”

From Marynia Kruk: What they’re reading now

“Real estate pros share picks for books on learning to give, minimalism and China’s economy.”
