Looking for some good reads to be released in 2020? Here are a few titles we are keeping an eye on.
Your Next Five Moves: Master the Art of Business Strategy – To be released August 18, 2020
Comments: Seriously, another book on strategy? What can we learn that we have not already on the topic of strategy? Yet, the chapters seem enticing. We might read mainly out of curiosity.
Iron Empires: Robber Barons, Railroads, and the Making of Modern America – to be released August 11, 2020
Comments: I have (Mark) already pre-ordered the electronic version as I’m a student of history. The narrative structure should make this a pleasurable read.
Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised, 12th Edition – to be released September 1, 2020
Comments: I stand corrected. I thought this was the 532nd revised edition. Happy reading. Seriously, imagine meetings with no order.
From Ball Girl to CMO – to be released September 14, 2020
Comments: Here’s betting every marketer will be reading this book, especially if they are sports fans.
How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices – to be released September 15, 2020
Comments: I enjoyed Annie Duke’s first book so much, I read it twice. I’m not sure if this will be a priority in 2020 – I’ll certainly be reading the reviews on the book after it’s released.
How I Build This: The Unexpected Paths to Success from the World’s Most Inspiring Entrepreneurs – to be released September 15, 2020
Comments: I’m so close to hitting the ‘buy’ button, but I can’t. I want to see the chapters first. Is this just a rehash of his best interviews? Then I’m passing. This has the makings of a great book if he does it right.
Game Changer: How to Be 10x in the Talent Economy – to be released September 22, 2020
Comments: Am I allowed not to comment? Is this a case where the title says it all with little meat if any between the covers?
Mentor to Millions: Secrets of Success in Business, Relationships, and Beyond – to be released September 22
Comments: This is not Kevin Harrington’s (of Shark Tank) first book. Name recognition will result in early-release sales. But I’m not sure how this book will move the needle in our thinking. Again, I’ll wait for reviewers to analyze the book before buying.
