Here’s the January, 2014 list of Business Books Best Sellers (New York Times) – Lean In is Still #1
I presented my synopsis of Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg last April (2013) at the First Friday Book Synopsis, and many times since then. It is, again, and still, #1 on the New York Times Business Best Sellers List. Just amazing!
Here is the January, 2014 list of Business Books Best Sellers from the New York Times. Notice again the presence of “earlier” Malcolm Gladwell books. And, for some reason, they do not include his new book, David and Goliath, as a “business” book. (It is currently #2 on the Hardcover Nonfiction Best Sellers list).
Note: On this list of ten best sellers, we have presented synopses of 7 at the First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas. I have presented synopses of: Lean In, Outliers, The Power of Habit, The Tipping Point, Steve Jobs, and The Everything Store. My colleague, Karl Krayer, has presented Thinking, Fast and Slow. You can purchase our synopses, with our comprehensive multi-page handouts and the audio of our presentations, at our companion web site, 15minutebusinessbooks.com. This is a good way to get a fast take on the key content of these best-selling books.
