Big Vape: The Incendiary Rise of Juul – to be released June 8, 2021
One of my favorite business genres is narrative non-fiction. If you liked Bad Blood or American Kingpin, this could be another great read where’ we’re also being educated about the destructive epidemic of vaping which I know very little about.
Scale at Speed – to be released June 10, 2021
I normally do not pre-order books from authors I know little about. I’m making an exception for Felix Verlarde. I’m already a huge David C. Baker fan of the 2Bobs podcast and his own book. David works with creative agencies around the globe, so my acumen for this industry is high, the one Felix Works in. I find his 2Y3X framework fascinating and impactful. I hope the book doesn’t disappoint.
Miseducated: A Memoir – to be released June 15, 2021
I’ve not listened to any interviews with the author, but I’m already curious if this will have some similarities to Westover’s Educated, one of the best books I’ve read in years. I have not pre-ordered it yet, but I will be searching for some interviews to see if this is a book that I want to dig into.
Never Pay the First Bill – to be released June 22, 2021
The sub-title alone not only has me hooked, but the producer of the CFO Bookshelf podcast is already working on arranging an interview with the author.
The Genius Zone – to be released June 29, 2021
I’m not a reader of self-help books, but I’m adding this one as this title is by the author of The Big Leap.
The Science of Dream Teams – to be released July 6, 2021
I’m very interested in this book, but I do not like the pricing at $22.99. If marketed correctly, this book could be a home run as it’s by the CEO of Predictive Index. If you are lukewarm on personality assessments, you may not like it. Still, I’m curious. I just hope it’s not a big advertisement for Predictive Index.
Behind the Mask of Facebook – to be released July 6, 2021
This is one of those books where I’d prefer to just read the summary, not the entire book. This appears to be a tell-all book by a former employee.
Launch (Updated and Expanded) – to be released July 27, 2021
I read Jeff’s first edition, and I enjoyed it. I was shocked by how much he gives away because he sells online courses that are very expensive which I’ve taken. I trust the author but I’m surprised he didn’t roll with a different title such as ReLaunch or Launch 2.0.
My Life in Full: Work, Family, and Our Future – to be released September 28, 2021
This is the memoir by the former CEO at PepsiCo.
Out of Office – to be released December 7, 2021
I have several friends working in the organizational health space, and this is the type of book I’d like them to read and share their notes with me. Run a large department in a post-COVID working environment? This title might be for you.
