6 Books to read



Well the Army Institute of Management, Kolkata had organized a Blog contest which this blog won and now the winning prize has arrived... or I should say, have arrived. Six of the books that I yearned to read arrived in the post and they are:

  1. The Halo Effect: and the Eight Other Business Delusions That Deceive Managers by Phil Rosenzweig
  2. Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die by Chip Heath
  3. Resonant Leadership: Renewing Yourself and Connecting with Others Through Mindfulness, Hope, and Compassion by Richard E. Boyatzis and Annie McKee
  4. Hard Facts, Dangerous Half-Truths And Total Nonsense: Profiting From Evidence-Based Management by Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert I. Sutton
  5. The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business Is Selling Less of More by Chris Anderson
  6. Every Business is a Growth Business: How Your Company Can Prosper Year After Year by Ram Charan and Noel Tichy

So look out for a series of book reviews in the near future as I go through these books. But currently I am busy reading Rushdie's "Shalimar the Clown". So these books would have to wait :-)
