The Evolving Way: An HP Story – release date: July 15, 2022
You are familiar with The HP Way, and I believe this will be a photo-centric version of that iconic culture. Unless I’m provided a media copy, I’m not sure I’ll pull the trigger on this text. I’m curious who the intended audience is for this book.

The topic looks fascinating, but this is a case where I’d like to hear the author talking about his main ideas before I buy the book.
Taxes Have Consequences: An Income Tax History of the United States – release date: September 27, 2022
If you like business history, this one looks intriguing even though the content could be dense at times.

The 6 Types of Working Genious – release date: September 27, 2022
Why does it feel like this book has been written? This will be the first Lencioni book that I will not read. This will be another book based on the affective mind, and there are scores of books on personality profiles. Do we need another?
Discipline is Destiny – release date: September 27, 2022
One of my favorite CEOs includes embracing obstacles as part of his company’s core values. And he loves Ryan Holiday. Accordingly, I’m including Ryan’s next book to be released soon.

I’m hoping for an Audible version.
For Profit: A History of Corporations – release date: November 8, 2022
As much as I like reading business history, at 384 pages, I fear this might be too academic of a read lacking in an engaging narrative.

The Enduring Value of Roger Murray – release date: November 23, 2022
Another of the many long lists of books on value investing.
