55 Good Business Books for Company Your Library…and your mind

An Updated List for 2020

 If you would like to increase your business knowledge, every couple of weeks you should consider reading a book from the list below.

If you would like to increase the knowledge of your company start to include reading as a part of individual’s priorities for the quarter.

Treat the book as a learning experience, underline points that resonate with you, write in the margins and highlight key phrases or even paragraphs, making them easy to find for future reference.  You may even want to create a short summary of the book for your future use.

There are hundreds of great business books out there and thousands of other business books as well; these are some of my favorites.  Enjoy the list (I would recommend starting with the books in Bold type).
