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 that will help you do business more effectively and write better for business.
In this post you’ll find pointers to lists of essential books for happiness and a list of the best business books of all time.
From Michael Bungay Stanier: Andy Cope’s Five Essential Books for Happiness and the Feel-Good Factor
“Andy Cope is a professional trainer, happiness expert and coauthor of The Little Book of Emotional Intelligence: How to Flourish in a Crazy World, which isn’t really little and isn’t really about emotional intelligence. Andy describes it as ‘the last 12 years of my life, distilled into something that makes me chuckle.’ You can follow him on Twitter @beingbrilliant, or scroll down for other ways to connect with him. I’m happy he’s my guest blogger today, sharing with us his essential books for happiness and the feel-good factor.”
“While there are mounds of terrible business books out there, there are some hidden gems. Read on for what I think are the best 12 business books and why you should read them.”
