The New York Times has published its April, 2024 list of best-selling business books – Yes, Atomic Habits is at #1…again! Atomic Habits

This morning, I presented my synopsis of Atomic Habits by James Clear to leaders in a growing, mid-size city in North Texas.  I’ve lost count of how many times I have presented this synopsis.  But each time I present it, I kick myself again for not developing fully the good habits I need to develop, and not ending the bad habits I should end.  I am grateful for the reminders I hear as I present this book to each new audience.  This is such a practical, life-shaping book.  So, it is not a surprise that it is yet again at #1 on the New York Times list of best-selling business books.  It has held this spot so many times since it was published.

Of the ten books on this month’s list, I have presented synopses of six of them at our monthly pubic event, the First Friday Book SynopsisAtomic Habits, Supercommunicators, The Creative Act, Slow Productivity, Hidden Potential, and Elon Musk. 

And, this week, I am presenting my synopsis of Hidden Potential to leaders of city governments, and then I am presenting my synopsis of Elon Musk at a conference of city government leaders on South Padre Island – just across the way from where SpaceX launches its big rockets.  That will be fun.

Of the six I have presented, every one of them is worth your money and time.  These are very good books to read, and learn from.

I do want to make this observation:  this month’s list has no books by women authors .  This monthly list frequently has very few women authors.  I wish more books by women were included.Elon musk, Isaacson
