You can see a list of all the book reviews on the site so far. It’s quite a mix, but mostly it relates to new and better ways of working. Of better and more “natural” ways in leadership, organization, change, psychology and learning.
If I had to pick the five books from that list that have influenced me the most, I’d go for:
++ Harpo Speaks
Harpo Marx’ autobiography.
++ The fifth discipline
The book that defined the learning organization.
++ Birth of the chaordic age
Dee Hocks autobiography, the story of Visa and the definition of chaordic organizations all in one book.
The story of Southwest Airlines, and their crazy and succesful employees.
++ A simpler way
Presents a simpler, more positive and truer way to look at the world and at organizations.
