I’ve already bought these books for reading in October. If you’ve read or are reading any, drop a comment detailing your thoughts about the book/author.
- Jagdish N. Sheth’s The Self-Destructive Habits of Good Companies: …And How to Break Them (Hardcover).
- Chris Anderson’s The Long Tail How Endless Choice Is Creating Unlimited Demand (Paperback). I didn’t know that there was another book – by the same author – titled The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More. Maybe I can pick this up for November.
- Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable (Hardcover).
Seldom do I come out of a bookstore empty handed. I read a book and if I think that someone I know might benefit by reading that book, I make it a point to forcibly put that book in their hands.
For example, M has Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, S has Jack Welch’s Winning, A has Sridhar Ramanujam’s One Land, one Billion Minds; Insights on Branding in India, V has Peter F. Drucker’s The Daily Drucker: 366 Days of Insight and Motivation for Getting the Right Things Done, and N has Muhammad Yunus’ Banker to the Poor: Micro-Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty.
Note: None of these books has come back to me. Either I am doing a great job or there’s something suspicious going on.
