This morning the Amazon editors released their list of 100 Leadership & Success Books to Read in a Lifetime. This is the seventh 100 Books list, and our goal with this one was to compose a list of books that would help people to plan for their future and/or live better in their present. That meant many different types of books were in play--biographies, self-help, business, inspiration, science of the mind, etc. There are Ted Talkers, Pulitzer finalists, and one or two Nobel Prize winners on our final list.
Here are some other facts:
- 5: the number of titles that begin with "The Art of..."
- 3: the number of books with "happiness" in the title
- 12: the number of books that could reasonably fall into biography/autobiography
Our hope is that there's something for everyone in this list. Of course, we realize we couldn't identify every book for every reader. If there's a book you love that you think should have made the list, go to our Readers' Picks list on GoodReads and add your own favorite. We'll publish that list on Amazon in a few weeks.
