The New York Times has just published its list of Best Selling Business Books for September, 2019. Dare to Lead by Brené Brown is back at the top spot; and not for the first time.
I presented my synopsis of this book at the January, 2019 First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas – our monthly book-centered event now in our 22ndyear. I think this book has hit quite a nerve!
Of the ten books, we have presented synopses of six of them at our Dallas event. I presented Dare to Lead, Range, Atomic Habits, Outliers, and Extreme Ownership. And my former colleague, Karl Krayer, presented Thinking, Fast and Slow.
One observation: the books by Gladwell, Kahneman, and the former Navy SEALs Willink and Babin, have been on this list, frequently reappearing, for a long time! I guess you could call them perennial best sellers.
As I have blogged often, there is nothing quite like reading a good book. There are some exceptional ones in this month’s list; certainly worthy of your time.
Here are the top ten best selling business books for September. Click over to the New York Times site for links to reviews of a few of these books.
