by on April 22nd, 2013

I wanted to start compiling a list of things I am reading, re-reading, and plan to read to help me on my MBA journey. Any and all other suggestions welcome! Like that old P.S.A. says…knowledge is power. :)

  1. You Don’t Need A Title to Be A Leader, Mark Sanborn – Just finished this in audiobook format
  2. The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, John Maxwell – Listening to this currently in audiobook format
  3. From Good to Great, Jim Collins – Would like to re-read.  I read half of it two years ago and never finished.
  4. Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg – Just finished this in audiobook format.  Really great and I highly recommend for anyone.
  5. Team of Rivals, Doris Kearns Goodwin – Currently reading this.  It has been on my shelf for forever!
  6. How to Get Into the Top MBA Programs, Richard Montauk – Have read sections of this and intent to re-read soon.
  7. 65 Successful Harvard Business School Application Essays, Various – Just got this from Amazon and it is next up on my list to read.
  8. How to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie – Would like to re-read this book.  It is very common sense advice on networking, despite the title.

  10. Happy Money: The Science of Smarter Spending – Michael Norton is a professor at Harvard and this book seems really interesting.
  11. How Would You Move Mount Fuji? Microsoft’s Cult of the Puzzle, How the World’s Smartest Companies Select the Most Creative Thinkers – I just heard of this book and it sounds like it is right up my alley.
  12. Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand – Have read about 1/4 of it and I am going to pick it back up soon.
  13. Never Eat Alone, Keith Ferrazzi – A book about networking that I have heard good things about.
  14. The McKinsey Way, Ethan Rasiel – A book about consulting, which I would be interested to learn more about.
