The New York Times has published its October, 2020 list of Best Selling Business Books. For the first time in quite a while, there are a few new books on the list. Atomic Habits by James Clear is still at #1. This book has been at the #1 spot for quite a few months. I suspect that Pandemic Season has made many of us focus on how we can build and maintain good habits while life is so disrupted?
At the First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas, I present synopses of two business books each month. We are in our 23rd year of these monthly sessions. (In the last four months, I have adjusted, and presented one business book and one book on racial issues. We will be back to two business books in November).
We have presented five of these ten books from this month’s list at our event. I presented the synopses of Atomic Habits, Doesn’t Hurt to Ask, Dare to Lead, and Extreme Ownership. My former colleague, Karl Krayer, presented the synopsis of Thinking, Fast and Slow.
I will likely select How to Lead and How I Built This, from this month’s list, to present in coming months.
