Here’s the November, 2014 New York Times Business Books Best Sellers List – Walter Isaacson’s The Innovators sits at the Top Spot


The InnovatorsHere’s the November, 2014 New York Times Business Books Best Sellers List. Walter Isaacson’s The Innovators sits at the Top Spot.

The challenge of innovation seems to dominate the top of this month’s list. The Innovators, How We Got to Now, How Google Works, and to a great extent Zero to One are all about innovators, teams of innovators, and innovation past and present (and, future).

So, maybe the wisdom of the hour is that the future belongs to those who can work together effectively to come up with the next new, new thing.

Of the ten titles on this month’s list, I have presented synopses of The Power of Habit, and Outliers. And, I will present Zero to One at the November 7 First Friday Book Synopsis, and The Innovators at our December 5 event. In addition, my colleague Karl Krayer has presented synopses of Thinking, Fast and Slow and #GIRLBOSS. That’s six of the ten that we either have presented, or will present, at our monthly First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas. (We have been meeting monthly since April, 1998).

{You can purchase our synopses, with our comprehensive multi-page handouts, and the audio of our presentations, at our companion web site, 15minutebusinessbooks.com}.
