There are so many links I come across and there is not enough time to write longer posts about all of them. Borrowing an idea from Ben Dowdy and his Misfill feature at The Pen Addict, I have started sharing these links in a blog post with a short description about why each article is interesting for authors.
- Business Book of the Year 2020 – the longlist (Financial Times) – The newspaper and its partner McKinsey announced the fifteen titles on their longlist for this year. See the image above for the cover art of the titles selected. The list gets narrowed to six books on September 23rd.
- We know what you’re reading this summer (McKinsey) – And speaking of McKinsey, this collection shares what 50+ leaders are reading. For example, Angela Duckworth recommends Peak by Anders Ericsson and Richard Buery rereads each year The Fire Next Time by James Bladwin.
- 5 Summer books and other things to do at home (Gates Notes) – There are still a few weeks of summer left and Bill Gates’ suggestions are still good ones. The highlights for me were Andy Puddicombe’s book on mindfulness and a pointer to playing online bridge.
- The Harvard Business School Faculty Summer Reader (HBS Working Knowledge) – These recommendations from professors at the school are wide-ranging . There is also a good list of what the recommenders are writing.
