Looking for some good reads to be released in 2020? Here are a few titles we are keeping an eye on.
This is Not a Fashion Story: Taking Chances, Breaking Rules, and Being Boss in the Big City – To be released May 12, 2020
Comments: CFO Bookshelf probably will not read this wild and crazy story about a tech entrepreneur. But if you work in the fashion industry, there might be a gem or two.
The Cobler: How I Disrupted an Industry, Fell from Grace, and Came Back Stronger Than Every – to be released May 12, 2020
Comments: This falls under the category of interesting. I know next to nothing about Steve Madden, the author. The shoe empire entrepreneur is a convicted felon, and I’m sure he will not be holding back.
No Rules Rules: Netflix and the Culture of Reinvention – to be released May 12, 2020
Comments: One of my favorite books in 2019 was That Will Never Work by Marc Rudolph, the co-founder and first CEO of Netflix. So how will this new release by Reed Hastings be different? Do we really need another Netflix book? Don’t forget that the first HR executive, Patty McCord, has also written a book about the Netflix culture – Powerful.
Bezonomics: How Amazon is Changing Our Lives and What the World’s Best Companies Are Learning From It – to be released May 12, 2020
Comments: I’ve already read the Everything Store, so I’m not sure if this will find its way on my book list. However, if you are intrigued by the Amazon business model, the title may provide insights.
Personality Isn’t Permanent: Break Free from Self-Limiting Beliefs and Rewrite Your Story – to be released June 16, 2020
Comments: Are you one of those people fascinated by personality profiles? This book might scratch an itch or two. However, I already disagree with the premise as it relates to our conative instincts. Conative instincts are innate – we’re born with them. So I’m curious if the writer hits on this aspect of the mind.
The Biggest Bluff: How I Learned to Pay Attention, Master Myself, and Win – to be released June 23, 2020
Comments: By the author who brought us Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes, she’s back with this newest book to be released this summer. Will the be another Annie Duke book (Thinking in Bets)?
The Garden: A Spiritual Fable About Ways to Overcome Fear, Anxiety, and Stress – to be released June 30, 2020
Comments: I’ve only read on Jon Gordon book, The Energy Bus. I realize he has a cult following, so we give him the nod by including his next book.
All books above are sorted by release date. CFO Bookshelf updates this page about the 15th of each month.
