Here are some best-selling business books for March from 800-CEO-READ, based on purchases by its corporate customers nationwide.
• “Quiet” shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts and how much we lose in doing so. Cain questions the dominant values of American business culture, where forced collaboration can stand in the way of innovation and where the leadership potential of introverts is often overlooked.
• “Understanding Michael Porter” sets the record straight, providing the first concise, accessible summary of Porter’s revolutionary thinking. Written with Porter’s full cooperation by Joan Magretta, his former editor at Harvard Business Review, this new book delivers fresh, clear examples to illustrate and update Porter’s ideas and corrects the most common misconceptions about them.
• Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg – ranked eighth on Fortune’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business – has become one of America’s most galvanizing leaders. In “Lean In,” she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged.
