I love adding a new resource to my business library. I'm currently reading Resonate Leadership by Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee. It talks about leadership that makes a difference and inspires others in their gifting.

What are you reading?

I'm reading "The Age of Miracles: Embracing The New Midlife", by Marianne Williamson. It's great so far.

I like to read inspiring books because they encourage me to allow my full potential to come forward. Of course, this directly affects others around me, as well as my business.

Resonate Leadership sounds good. I believe a great Leader is one who draws the genius out of her team. My own personal mission is to empower women leaders to empower others in this way.

Winter Study by Nevada Barr. I love her mysteries - they take place in different national parks in the US. very cool.

Of course this is not a business book. As for business I am checking out David Allen's Ready for Anything.

Both sound like great books. I have The Age of Miracles in my "to read next" pile. I look forward to it. And Jill Winter Study sounds like a good summer read.

I am reading Duct Tape Marketing, Word of Mouth Marketing, and How Customers Think.

I highly recommend Fooled by Randomness, Black Swan, and Halo Effect. After you read Halo Effect, you will think twice before buying any of the "business" books such as Build to Last, Good to Great, etc.

I just finished the Power of Now. Before that it was Three Cups of Tea and Eat, Pray and Love. I recommend all three!

I'm reading a book on Brands & Branding. I've only just started it but already it's opened my eyes to how powerful a successful brand can be.

This is a really important issues right now. Those in the business world would do well to pay attention to what is going on in China and India. Thanks for posting.

It is interesting to look back at old posts to see what people were reading five years ago.

I read a few of the books mentioned: The Power of Now, Duct Tape Marketing. I never got around to reading Eat Pray Love nor did I see the movie though I meant to.

Right now I’m reading Gabrielle Bernstein’s May Cause Miracles.

I've just finished reading The Sound of Things Falling by Colombian writer Juan Gabriel Vásquez. Beautifully written, thoughtful book.

But I'm now reading The Astronaut Wives Club. I read the other day that it's going to be a TV series starting soon. (I doubt that I'll watch it.)

Once in a Blue Moon by Eileen Goudge. She is the best writer ever! I can just fall into the book and feel like I'm living it.

I am reading 'Mustang a lost Tibetan kingdom' by Michel Peissel. I have read 'Three cups of Tea', 'Snow Leopard', '7 years in Tibet', 'Into the thin air' in past few years. I will also read 'Buddha's warriors' as I have found it resourceful to know more about cultural revolution in Tibet.

The book I am reading now 'Mustang a lost Tibetan Kingdom' explains the place as hidden paradise, where wheels were not used and earth was thought to be flat. 'Sky burial', polyandry, Tibetan bandits, Shakya Buddhist royal family, Tibetan medicine practice, meditation caves witnessed by writer in as late as 1960es make it sound like a hidden Shangri La.
