Here are recent best-selling business books for August from 800-CEO-READ:

• “The Chaos Imperative” – The authors reveal how organizations can drive growth and profits by allowing contained chaos and disruption the space to flourish, generating new ideas that trigger innovation.

• “Leadership Transformed” – How does a good manager become a great leader? Ask around in business circles and you’ll get a thousand different answers. After more than a decade’s research and practice, Peter Fuda shares the seven common themes that have enabled hundreds of CEOs across the world to transform themselves into highly effective leaders – and transform the performance of their organizations as well.

• “Compelling People” – The authors demystify the process we use to size each other up. It turns out that we judge each other primarily on two critical criteria: strength and warmth. The authors explain the inner workings of each, the tension that makes it so hard to project both at once, and the successful strategies that the most admired among us use to win respect and affection.
