Top 10 Business Books

Since we started aggregating data about the top ten business books earlier this year, we have become increasingly suspicious that the data is a reflection of the mood of the nation. While last month appeared to have a significant slant towards all things financial, this month's list has a slightly softer edge to it. With books like Option B  by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant, Radical Candor  by Kim Scott and Hit Makers by Derek Thompson. There's a message in these titles that suggests we all want to excel and be better at what we do – but we are still only human.

Paradoxically, the book occupying this month's top spot doesn't appear to have anything 'soft' about it. Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin was originally published by St. Martin's Press in 2015, and appears to be seeing somewhat of a resurgence. What this says about our collective psyche is probaby a great topic for debate.

We have been truly overwhelmed by all the support for our business - from readers, authors and publishers alike. Thank you.

As always, we love feedback from our readers and welcome suggestions for books that you believe we should be looking at.
