From Business Insider: http://www.businessinsider.com/red-hat-ceo-shares-his-favorite-business-books-2015-11

A person could make a career reading business books. The key is to separate the best from the ordinary.

Jim Whitehurst is the CEO of Red Hat a very successful company in RDU.

Two of the books I’ve read:

  • “Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action” by Simon Sinek
  • “Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done” by Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan

Both excellent books. I believe that if you lead a business/organization, you need to read the best books, it’s impossible to know everything that makes a successful business or organization.

There has been no change in my best book list: Tom Peters, Oren Harari, Seth Godin, Jim Collins. They are the gold standard for business influencers.
