This month’s selection of books provides a fantastic range of ‘thinking’ and ‘doing’ books.

There are also books that will challenge the overwhelming state of society today – check out Tailspin, Off the Clock and The War on Normal People if you are craving a different perspective on our always-on world.

If you are looking for a meaty, thought-provoking read, why not check out our Editor’ choice this month, Forged in Crisis by Nancy Koehn. It’s a well-researched, fantastic read, drawing leadership lessons from iconic historical figures.

Happy reading!
