book list recommendations business mindset
I had some complaints about my previous book-recommendation post.

Apparently it increased the size of people’s Amazon wishlists and “Books To Read” lists to uncomfortable levels.

Well, sorry about that! By way of apology, here are 29 more book recommendations as swiped from the conversations and Facebook posts of interesting people ๐Ÿ™‚

You’ll be pleased to know there are no more books on my swipe-list.

39 Book Recommendations I’ve Swiped From Smart People

May 30, 2016

For a few weeks now I’ve been swiping book recommendations from various Facebook posts. It’s about time I pulled the lists together. Full disclosure: this is a self-serving blog post. I’ll put the list here for my own reference, and if someone out there benefits from it too then great!

These 39 books are all titles I haven’t yet read (or listened to), so I can’t personally recommend them. It’s a long list, and not particularly organised. But I hope you get something from it.

(I download all my audiobooks from Audible.co.uk – I haven’t checked to see which of these books are on Audible yet.)

If you’ve read any of these, did you love it, hate it? Think I should put it at the top of the list… or think I’d be wasting my time reading it at all?
