45 New Books (by Top Authors) for Your Management Book Shelf

You may have seen that I supplied the data for Inc.com’s Top 50 Management & Leadership Experts. People seem to like it very much.

Well, what I also did was find the answer to the question, “What are the latest book releases of the management & leadership experts?” And so, I started digging.

I discovered new books by Tim Harford, Daniel Kahneman, Dan Ariely, Henry Mintzberg, Jason Fried, Simon Sinek, Peter Senge, Malcolm Gladwell, Chip & Dan Heath, John Kotter, Clayton Christensen, and many more… My reading backlog just doubled in size!
