The November, 2018 New York Times Business Books Best Sellers list is now published. This is the best sellers list that I most closely follow.
Through the years, we have presented synopses of a quite large percentage of the books that land on this list at our monthly event in Dallas, the First Friday Book Synopsis. (We tend to not select many “one company” books, or many of the finance books on the list).
There are books that are perennial best sellers that reappear often on the list. There are books by popular authors.
And, as I have often stated, just reading any book with focus and attention can point you to new ideas and even new directions.
Of the ten this month, after our December event, I will have presented synopses of three of them: Atomic Habits (one of my two December selections), and the two by former Navy SEALs, Extreme Ownership and The Dichotomy of Leadership. I think in coming months we will present Leadership by Goodwin, and I am considering AI Superpowers.
