Three books to kick you

Do you like business books that inspire you to move into action, or books that break down what someone did in their business? If it’s the former then this month has seen a couple of excellent releases for you:

Gary Vaynerchuk is a hustler. His second book, The Thank You Economy is out this week. Gary took his father’s wine store turnover from $4m to $69m inside 5 years. He hustled. He expanded. He served. He innovated. He grew. He succeeded. This guy is someone you should hook into.

Seth Godin has released a short 70-odd page book called, Poke The Box. It’s about starting things, kicking off and shipping. Like so many of his short pieces he’s asking you to DO something.

A third beauty that I haven’t got ‘round to yet is Evil Plans: Having Fun on the Road to World Domination from Hugh MacLeod. It’s also his second release and another offering insight into an Internet and marketing powerhouse.

Enjoy (and then DO something).

    Hey Nick

    The books that ‘move’ me are those that make you look at what we do, and how things are done….and then deconstruct them. For sheer insight, read “Outliers”, “The Tipping Point” and “Blink” by the brilliant Malcolm Gladwell – all will have some relevance in some sense or other, but The Tipping Point is a brilliant appraisal of how things go from being ‘a thing’ to being ‘THE thing’.

    Thanks for joining the conversation, Mark. I agree, Gladwell is so relevant and hugely insightful. These three are far easier reads but very action orientated which is what an impatient bugger like me enjoys.
