What Business Books Are You Reading?

Books are so important: To learn, to open your mind to new ideas and to bring a little humor into your day

Bookworm 2I am a book worm, always have been, always will be. As a Luddite, I take comfort in holding a real book in my hands. There aren’t enough hours in the day to read the books that I want to, whether business books or “beach” books (I am in Florida after all). So I’m asking for your help.

Do you have certain business/professional books that you’ve read that you keep going back to for reference or that you recommend?

Would you share with me what you are reading now or have read recently? 

Whether on leadership, motivation, personal or business development and strategies, sales, career success, branding, marketing, new technology, I’d appreciate your recommendations.

Here is a list of books that I recommend to clients, colleagues and business associates and that can be found on my website book store:
