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:
‘A Whole New Mind – Why Right-Brainers Will Rule The Future’, Daniel H. Pink, 2008; Brilliance Audio, MI.
The first book by the brilliant author of ‘Drive’ and ‘To Sell Is Human’. I read the book several years ago, but had to experience his work again, this time in the car.
