Book Lists and the Purpose They Serve



I'm a list person. I like to make lists, cross out the items on the list I've completed and make a new list of items still to do or new things that need done. My affinity for lists is why I post many lists of best books on this blog.

I like lists and the book lists are highly useful for the person who is working hard at working hard and may not have the time to walk through a bookstore on a regular basis. Lots of people must find the best books lists helpful because almost very magazine you buy or look through will have a list of new books or must have books for success.

A short list of the magazines with lists of best business books for 2017 included Forbes, Fortune, Inc. and Business Insider. The New York Times also provides a list of top selling business books and you can do a google search to find some of the top selling and best reviewed books.

Below is a list of links that will lead you to lists of recommendations for reading and some reviews:

Inc. Magazine
Standford Business
New York Times
Books for Entrepreneurs
Business Insider

While 2017 is flying by, there's still plenty of time to pick up a few of the books on the list either at your local library or at your local bookstore. Just like I don't apologize for liking lists, I won't apologize for thinking that business books make great beach readers.

As always, keep reading!

A Bestseller's List from Success Magazine

The April 2016 issue of "Success" magazine has an interesting bestseller's list  in the back. The list has 10 bestselling business books. The magazine notes "Success analyzes a combination of sales data acquired from Nielsen BookScan-which gathers point-of-sale data from more than 16,000 locations across the U.S.-and from a variety of independently verified sources within the personal development industry."

The list is compiled from sales from Jan. 4 to Jan. 31, 2016. What's interesting is that there are at least two books on the list that where first published decades ago. See if you know which ones. Here's the the 10 books with author names that were listed.


1. StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath (Gallup Press)

2. The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts by Gary Chapman (Northfield Publishing)

3. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie (Pocket Books)

4. Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges by Amy Cudd…
