A couple of observations: Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In is back at number one. This really is a remarkable run for this important book.
And Outliers is back on, at number three. Malcolm Gladwell really is an author that strikes a chord with a lot of readers.
We have presented ½ of these 10 books at the First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas. I have presented my synopses of Lean In, Outliers, The Power of Habit, and The Second Machine age. My colleague Karl Krayer presented his synopsis of Thinking, Fast and Slow.
Here is the list. You can read a short description of each book at the New York Times site.
