Each month, the New York Times compiles a list of best selling books, in multiple categories. Here is the May, 2015 Business Books Best Sellers List. It is always amazing how some “older” books keep showing up. This month, we see again The Power of Habit; Think Like a Freak; Thinking, Fast and Slow; and Outliers in this list of ten books. We presented our synopses of all four of these books quite some time back at the First Friday Book Synopsis. And # 3 on this list is Becoming Steve Jobs, which I just presented at our May gathering.
There are five books on this month’s list we have not selected for our event, although we are certainly looking closely at Work Rules! as a possibility. (The other ones may not quite fit our purposes).
Here’s the New York Times May, 2015 list. Click over to the NY Times site for a short description of each these books.
