Some Books Worth Reading

by Stephen Mills on January 8, 2012

Here are some books I have read recently that I think are worth checking out.

Blah Blah Blah: What To Do When Words Don’t Work – This is an excellent book.  If you communicate ideas to other people then you want to read this book.  It is worth its weight in gold.

Smart Thinking: Three Essential Keys to Solve Problems, Innovate, and Get Things Done – This is simply a smart book.

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking – I’m an introvert and I loved this book.

Off Balance: Getting Beyond the Work-Life Balance Myth to Personal and Professional Satisfaction – A very insightful book on personal and professional life satisfaction.

Thinking, Fast and Slow – A superb book on how our minds work by a giant in the field.

The following two books are short singles so get the kindle version which is much less expensive.  They are both excellent.

Three Cups of Deceit: How Greg Mortenson, Humanitarian Hero, Lost His Way

Read This Before Our Next Meeting

Here are some other worthwhile books:

Innovation You: Four Steps to Becoming New and Improved

Organize Your Mind, Organize Your Life: Train Your Brain to Get More Done in Less Time

What Makes Your Brain Happy and Why You Should Do the Opposite

18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done

Mindhacker: 60 Tips, Tricks, and Games to Take Your Mind to the Next Level

I can’t wait to check out that book about introverts. As much as I’d love to convert myself into an extrovert, I just don’t see it happening. I think it will be great to get some insight on introversion as a strength. Thanks for this list!

Hi there! thanks for the lists! But for me I should read this book “18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done”. I really have too. I have to know how to compete and fight with distractions. In this field of work, distractions must be eliminated for good.
