Here is the New York Times list of Best-selling business books for February, 2023 – Atomic Habits is again, and still, at #1

 The New York Times has just published their February, 2023 list of best-selling business books.  Of the ten books on this month’s list, we have presented seven at our monthly event, the First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas, which will complete 25 full years of monthly gatherings in March.

Again…still…repeatedly…Atomic Habits is number one on this month’s list.  I have followed this list for years, and there has never been another book spend anywhere near as much time at the top spot as this book has. Atomic Habits

I have presented synopses of five of these books: Atomic Habits, Dare to Lead, The End of the World is Just the Beginning, Extreme Ownership, and Stolen Focus.

My former colleague, Karl Krayer, presented synopses of Grit, and Thinking, Fast and Slow.

All seven of these books are quite good; certainly worth your time.

Though I do not select all of the books from this list for my presentations at the First Friday Book Synopsis, I have presented many, many of the books that have been on this list through the years.
