Frenetic days filled with meetings, email, conference calls, and a million other things that demand your attention can leave you feeling wiped at the end of the week. We’re all guilty of trying to cram a few more hours of work into an already jam-packed day, and if you’re an avid reader like me, it means constantly being on the lookout for those rare and precious moments when you can sit down with a great book and let the world fade away. Most of the world’s most successful people are passionate about reading and always will be.
Amazon offers more than twelve million plus books on topics ranging from Art to Zen meditation and everything in between. There are more than 28,000 books on leadership, entrepreneurship, and business. But which ones are actually worth a read?
Well, here’s to making your life a tad easier. Here are a few of my new favorites:
- The Boys in the Boat and Their Epic Quest for the Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics – Daniel James Brown
- Talking to Crazy – Dr. Mark Goulston
- Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance – Angela Duckworth
- The Genius of Opposites: How Introverts and Extroverts Achieve Extraordinary Results – Jennifer Kahnweiler
- A Force for Good: The Dali Lama’s Vision for Our World – Daniel Goleman
- When Millennials Take Over: Preparing For The Ridiculously Optimistic Future of Business – Jamie Notter
I’m always reading and curating books so if you want to see more of my favorites, and some interesting interviews with leading authors, you can find them on Leadership Compound’s Resources by simply clicking here.
