What Business Books Are You Reading?

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

I always have a business books available for reading, but am backed up at present with FOUR!

Various business books to be read

How to decide what to read first?

  • I've had Endless Referrals since January! I started it, but then got busy and put it down. It didn't grab me, but perhaps that had more to do with my schedule than with the book.
  • I've also had Brief for several months. I started it, liked it, put it down for a number of weeks. I picked it up again this week while away on my quarterly review night. It's good; I can learn a lot from it. I'll definitely finish it, and soon. When I do I'll share some of the salient points with you.
  • The 10 Laws of Trust I purchased 2 weeks ago, primarily because I know and admire the author. I'm sure I'll like his insights and appreciate the wisdom he shares. Can't wait to read it.
  • Deliver the Unexpected is written by the CEO of the coaching program I just re-joined last week. I know the points will resonate with me.

What are you reading? And how do you pick your books? Care to share?

Lottie Kendall - You're good to read business books, and while I'm on Chapter 3 of Wordpress Websites for Dummies Book, I've set it aside for a summer romance book by Nora Roberts. What can I say, I need some summer fun right now!  : )

I'm so in love with books and enjoy different genres. The three I'm reading now are:

The Snowden Files by Luke Harding

The Hidden History of the JFK Assassination by Lamar Waldron

Five Presidents by Clint Hill

The books you listed sound great! I believe I read The 10 Laws of Trust by Stephen Covey; however, I haven't read any of the others. However, they are something I'd like to read soon!

Hi Lottie... Endless Referrals... one of my favorites for many, many years. Let me also recommend The Power of Full Engagement, if you haven't already read it. (I know, just what you needed--adding a book to your list.)

New photo? Or am I behind the times here? I like it.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint - I'm really liking Brief - and am taking to heart many of the ideas espoused in it.

Laura Allen, Lake Tahoe - Truckee Real Estate for Sale www.TahoeLauraLuxuryHomes.com - I also read for pleasure (usually 1 page before I fall asleep!) I'll tell you about my current book later

Hi Nina Hollander - I'll dig into Endless Referrals again at some point--maybe I just wasn't ready for it at the beginning of the year. You're right about the head shot being a new one -- it still looks strange to me!

Hi Patricia Feager - you have some good reading going on. How do you decide which book to pick up, and when? Which 5 presidents?

The 10 Laws of Trust is by Joel Peterson, who I knew about 20 years ago. He's a great person, so I'll probably read his book next.

Good morning Gita Bantwal - it's hard to find time to read, isn't it? I guess that's why I have 4 books backed up, waiting.....

I just read the energy bus and I really enjoyed it.  It's eh... of the motivational, attitude genre and I needed it.
