As frequent site visitors realize, this ‘BookShelf’ section regularly lists books I’ve found useful and interesting. Two months ago, I included a comprehensive list of the general business-related titles I had mentioned over time.
Looks like that idea was a hit as several readers asked for more. My pleasure to help. The list below includes all the workplace communication-related titles I’ve mentioned in the last three years:
‘The Art of Storytelling – Become a Memorable Speaker’, Doug Stevenson, et. al., 2011, Blackstone Audio Inc.
