So, below you'll find a list of the 8 books I've read that would definitely recommend checking out. No vague "Who took my cheese" type of books here.
8. Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand Philosophical novel for thought: Why is it "heroic" to revolutionize the world, instead of being a parasite.
7. Good To Great - Jim Collins Why great companies make the leap and others don't.
6. The Power Of Habit - Charles Duhigg (@cduhigg) Most circumstances in life can be traced to habits we've learned.
5. The Lean Startup - Eric Ries (@ericries) Smart, metric based experiments can lead to data based decisions.
4. What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 - Tina Seelig (@tseelig) Never miss an opportunity to be fabulous.
3. Give and Take - Adam Grant (@AdamMGrant) The more we help others grow while building trust based networks, the more successful we become.
2. Creative Confidence - David Kelley (@kelleybros) Belief in your creative capacity lies at the heart of innovation.
1. Worthless, Impossible, and Stupid - Daniel Isenberg (@danisen) Contrarian perception, creation, and capture of extraordinary value.
Again, hope the book list above is useful for fellow founders, academics, and policymakers. Live long and prosper. 🖖
