I talk about a lot of external content on this site, so I thought it might be useful to bring all of these resources together in a single place. I’ll be adding to this list as the site grows. Enjoy!
Disclosure: I’m all about being open and honest on this site. I have an Amazon affiliate account and receive a small commission when you purchase a book via a link on this page. This commission does not effect the price of the book but it does help to fund the upkeep of my site and allows me to continue to share content with all of my readers. Lastly, the list of books below represents a snapshot of the most treasured items in my own library. If it hasn’t helped me, and I don’t think it will help you, it’s not here.
How to Ruin a Business Without Really Trying: What Every Entrepreneur Should Not Do When Running a Business by MJ Gottlieb – The definitive ‘not to do’ list for entrepreneurs. Hilarious and insightful. One of my faves.
The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss – This book literally changed so many aspects of my life. Whether you are an employee, thinking of starting a business or just wanting to improve your productivity (or rather the quality of your output) this book is pure gold.
Manager’s Guide to Crisis Management by Jonathan Bernstein – I referenced this book in my post last year on responding to a crisis. Jonathan’s insights here on managing the practical aspects of a crisis, along with his guidance on PR and reputation management are invaluable.
Brick by Brick: How LEGO Rewrote the Rules of Innovation and Conquered the Global Toy Industry by David Robertson – This book is a treasure trove of information about how to innovate the right way and the dangers of applying the 7 laws of innovation incorrectly. David Robertson is one of the few authors who’s actually gotten inside the toy giant and his insights are fascinating.
