Looking for some good reads to be released in 2020? Here are a few titles we are keeping an eye on.
Wenger: My Life and Lessons in Red & White – to be released November 10, 2020
Comments: Here’s a prediction – this will be a best-selling book. I know nothing about soccer. Yet, I’m adding this to the pile and hope to read it before the end of the year.
Invent & Wander: The Collected Writings of Jeff Bezos – To be released November 17, 2020
Comments: This book looks interesting, but what is the source documentation? Annual reports? New articles? I might wait till I read the reviews before buying.
BE 2.0 (Beyond Entrepreneurship 2.0) – to be released December 1, 2020
Comments: Jim Collins and the halo effect is alive and well, but I’ll probably read this one anyway. I mainly want to know what he’s thinking. If he narrates his own book, I’ll probably get the Audible version.
IPO Playbook – to be released December 10, 2020
Comments: It’s been years since I’ve done any SEC work, and that was as a grunt auditor at KPMG. Even if you work in the private world, this might be a nice reference book. Do you invest in IPOs? It might be a helpful behind-the-scenes look at how IPOs come to fruition.
Business Made Simple: 60 Days to Master Leadership, Sales, Marketing, Execution and More – to be released January 19, 2021
Comments: If you follow marketing books or know about StoryBrand, then you know who Donald Miller is. I’m going to assume this book is loosely based on his YouTube video series which is quite good. It’s a flip of the coin if I buy this.
Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know – to be released February 2, 2021
Comments: Adam Grant is the best-selling author of Originals, so that’s why this title is on this list. I’m already intrigued.
