The New York Times has just published its list of best-selling business books for July, 2020. Again this month during pandemic season, Atomic Habits is #1 on the list.
My theory on why this is still #1 is simple: we are all having to work on ourselves, and this means that we need to get rid of bad habits and cultivate good habits – habits that are good for us, and are useful in this new work environment. This book provides genuine help for that quest.
After our August First Friday Book Synopsis, we will have presented 8 of these 10 books at our monthly book event in Dallas. I have presented Atomic Habits, Dare to Lead, The Ride of a Lifetime, Outliers, Extreme Ownership, and (after our August 7 session), The Deficit Myth. And my former colleague, Karl Krayer, presented Grit and Thinking, Fast and Slow.
Note: This month’s list includes three books written by women authors.
These eight books provide great insight. I strongly recommend all eight. (I’m sure the other two are good books, but I have not read them…).
