The New York Times Business Books Best Sellers list for October, 2016 has now been published. At the #1 spot is The Upside of Inequality. This was a fast journey to the top spot; this book was just published in September, 2016.
Some of the other books fall into the “personal productivity/live more fulfilling, productive lives” category.
We have only presented four of these selections at the First Friday Book Synopsis. (The lowest in a very long time!). I have presented my synopses of Outliers and The Power of Habit, and my colleague Karl Krayer has presented his synopses of Grit and Thinking, Fast and Slow.
