Leaders are readers. Reading helps you discover ideas to try and expand your mental models. In this post, I point you to reviews of recent business books. You’ll find pointers to reviews of You Need A Manifesto: How To Craft Your Convictions And Put Them To Work, The Power of Wonder: The Extraordinary Emotion that Will Change the Way You Live, I, Human: AI, Automation, and the Quest to Reclaim What Makes Us Unique, The Burnout Challenge: Managing People’s Relationships with Their Jobs, and Outlive: The Science and Art of Longevity. Plus there’s Michael McKinney’s preview of leadership books scheduled for release in April 2023.
