Andrew Ross Sorkin of The New York Times has compiled The Essential Summer Wall St. Reading List. It is worth looking at. Your knowledge and insight about managing can take a leap by reading about the successes and failures of other managers and leaders. Sorkin’s list includes real-life accounts of business success and failure, biographies and modern and ancient analyses of how to succeed and lead. Whether you work in the private sector or not, these books can be powerful aids in developing your management acumen and talent.
The list of books follow. I encourage you to check out the article for Sorkin’s explanation of why he chose each book.
Wishing you good reading this summer! Are you reading any good books? Let me know.
