Play Nice But Win: A CEO’s Journey from Founder to Leader – to be released October 5, 2021
I don’t buy many books blindly, but I will this one. I expect this to be a best-seller with little to no self-aggrandizing.
Risk: A User’s Guide – to be released October 5, 2021
Four-star general Stanley McChrystal has a new book coming out. But will it measure up to Team of Teams?
Unsettled: How the Purdue Parma Bankruptcy Failed the Victims of the American Overdose Crisis – to be released October 5, 2021
I’ve already read about the release of this book, and I think what I’ll do is wait and listen to some of the podcasts that interview the author. If you like narrative non-fiction, this could possibly be the best of 2021. A similar title, Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Dynasty, was released earlier in the year with strong ratings (2.7k at 4.7 on Amazon).
The Self-Aware Leader – to be released October 5, 2021
Just how many books has John Maxwell written? This one is his newest.
Tickled: A Commonsense Guide to the Present Moment – to be released October 19, 2021
Duff McDonald is an outstanding writer. I’ve already read The Firm: The Story of McKinsey and Its Secret Influence on American Business. I’m currently reading Last Man Standing which will be a business classic for years to come. Duff’s next book is coming out soon, and it’s a topic we’ll be hitting on a future podcast and newsletter.
Impact Players – to be released October 19, 2021
Count me as a lifelong Liz Wiseman fan. You may know her for her best-selling book, Multipliers. I think her other book, Rookie Smarts is vastly underrated. I’m sure this book will be excellent. I pre-ordered my copy in September, so I’ll be reading it once it hits my Kindle.
CryptoDad: The Fight for the Future of Money – to be released October 26, 2021
I’m not sure what to expect, but the title is intriguing. I’ll wait to read the first reviews before buying.
