What are the best books you’ve read in 2014?
Each year for the past 12 years I’ve read between 40-50 books a year (except one year when I only read 30+ books). So far this year I’ve read 49 books. And, this sparks the obvious question: which ones are the best books I’ve read in 2014?
In this Podcast Episode
Here’s the top ten best books I’ve read during 2014:
- A book on reciprocity styles as the key to success
- A book on creating happiness through working on your strengths
- A book on the gamification of motivation
- A book on presenting yourself through infographics
- A book on how to create meaning through your work
- A book on vulnerability
- A book about one person’s wild adventures to fulfill their bucket list
- A book on why design thinking is needed in the boardroom
- A book that rewrites sales in the age of digital media
