The 30 Best Business Books of 2018

December 21, 2018

As you know, every year we scour through thousands of business books and select the titles that we believe have the ideas and concepts that are instrumental to the professional development of our subscribers. For each one of those books, we create a quick-read/quick-listen summary that highlights only the most important aspects of each book.

Now that we’ve finalized our complete list of summaries for 2018, let’s take a brief moment to reflect on the topics and ideas of the books that made our list.

Two things really stood out to us with our list of selections this year:

  1. During the year, we evaluated many books related to storytelling. It seems that even in this new high-speed, digital age that we all operate in (and where everything is seemingly one-click away), taking the time to craft a compelling story about your product/service/company is still a priority. People still want to know ‘why’ they should do business with you.
  2. The other prevailing item we noted was the proliferation of titles that deal with personal goal-setting, achievement, and motivation. It seems that there is still an appetite for discovering tactics that help individuals get ahead in their careers and, at the same time, achieve success outside the office.

Without further ado, here is our list of the 30 Best Business Books of 2018:
