Summer Reading List - Business, Motivation And Non-Fiction Books I'm Digging Into

I was pretty much packing back one business book a week about a year ago. I still buy books at that pace, but I've been slower on the reading - mostly due to all of the audio (and video) I'm consuming via Podcasts. All that being said, it hasn't stifled my voracity for business books or any other form of non-fiction book titles with some kind of content related to knowledge, humanity, communities or sociology. Truth is I can't walk past a bookstore without going in_ and buying something.

I need to take all of this passion and pile it into the next episode of Foreword Thinking - The Business And Motivational Book Review Podcast (new episodes are on their way - promise).

Here's my summer reading list (in the order that I grabbed them off of the bookshelf - random):

- Made To Stick - Why Some Ideas Survive And Others Die by Chip And Dan Heath.

- The Dip - A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick) by Seth Godin.

- A Crowd Of One - The Future Of Individual Identity by John Henry Clippinger.

- Everything Is Miscellaneous - The Power Of The New Digital Disorder by David Weinberger.

- Little Green Book Of Getting Your Way - How To Speak, Write, Present, Persuade, Influence And Sell Your Point Of View by Jeffrey Gitomer.

- You, Inc. - The Art Of Selling Yourself by Harry Beckwith and Christine Clifford Beckwith.

- There's No Such Thing As Public Speaking - Make Any Presentation Or Speech As Persuasive As A One-To-One Conversation by Jeanette And Roy Henderson.

- No Problem by Alex Lowy.

- Wikinomics - How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything by Don Tapscott and Anthony D. Williams.

I know it's a long list, but the summer has just begun. I've even gone ahead and grabbed some of them on audio as well, so I don't have any excuses. I'd love to know what's rocking your night tables and inspiring you.
