Here’s the New York Times November, 2019 list of best selling business books – Ryan Holiday (Stillness is the Key) is at the top spot

still in the top ten...

still in the top five…

The New York Times has published its November, 2019 list of Best Selling Business Books.  There are a few new books on this month’s list.

For the first time in quite a while, we have presented synopses of fewer than half of the books on the month’s list at our monthly Dallas event, the First Friday Book Synopsis.  I have presented synopses of #4, The Infinite Game; #5, Dare to Lead; #6, Atomic Habits; and #10, Outliers. 

I have also recently presented the new Malcolm Gladwell book, Talking to Strangers.  That book is a top-ten nonfiction best seller, but not categorized as a business book.

And, I’m pretty sure I will select #1, and #2, for early in 2020, the new books by Ryan Holiday and Marc Benioff.  I am a fan of both of these men:  Mr. Holiday as a writer, and Mr. Benioff as a business leader and activist.

Here is the NY Times November, 2019 list of best selling business books.  Click over to the New York Times site for more information on these books, and a link to the Times review of Outliers.
