Here are recent best-sellers from 800-CEO-READ, which compiles a regular listing of best-selling business books:

• “Stewardship” is the journey of financial insider John Taft towards understanding and affirming the importance of stewardship, which he has come to define as “serving others,” as a core principle for the financial services industry, the global financial system and society at large. • In “Extreme Productivity,” Robert C. Pozen reveals the secrets to workplace productivity and high performance. His book is for anyone feeling overwhelmed by an existing workload – facing myriad competing demands and multiple time-sensitive projects. “Extreme Productivity” explains how to determine your highest priorities and match them with how you actually spend your time.

•  Using hard data and compelling field stories, “Selling with Purpose” explains why salespeople who understand earnestly how they make a difference to customers outperform their more quota-driven counterparts. This book shows executives, managers, and aspiring sales leaders how to create a sales force of True Believers who drive revenue and do work that makes them proud. MCT
