Looking to add more books to my shelf, preferably ones that’ll help me improve my business -management skills. Any suggestions?
In all seriousness:
- The Utopia of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity, and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy. (David Graeber)
- On Bullshit (Harry Frankfurt)
- Neurotic Styles (David Shapiro)
The Art of War, of course is a classic. It may seem antiquated at first, but many of those lessons apply to management today as well.
It’s not specifically business management, but I found: Zero to One to be a great book.
REWORK is a great book. https://37signals.com/rework
When you say that you want to improve your business management skills, what areas are you looking to improve and to what end?
I really think that context would help to get some more tailored recommendations from the people here.
Anything you want by Derek Sivers. Same kind of approach as Basecamp, I love it.
I’ve read The E-Myth Revisited and Zero to One during the past six months, and both of them were full of great new ideas. I think the next business books on my list will probably be Work the System and Turning Pro.
