5 Books to Read in 2016

Posted by Callie Walker


This year, we’re resolving to read more books. And with so many thought-provoking reads now available, keeping our resolution is bound to be a breeze.

Here’s what’s on our reading list in 2016...

1. How to Have a Good Day by Caroline Webb

We all want to have good days at work, and Caroline Webb’s How to Have a Good Day is full of practical tips and tricks to achieve just that. This book comes out February 2, so get those shopping carts ready!

2. Creativity, Inc. by Ed Catmull

As you develop your career, you might find that your level of creativity has dwindled a bit. But according to Ed Catmull, cofounder of Pixar, everyone is inherently creative - we just tend to stymie the process because of various social forces and/or personal inhibitions. Creativity, Inc. is all about how to get that creativity back, regardless of your profession.

Fun fact: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently selected this book for his own book club!

3. TED Talks by Chris Anderson

Now this book doesn’t come out until May 3, but you better believe it’s on our list! It’s all about how to communicate. TED Talks explains how the miracle of powerful public speaking is achieved and equips you to give it your best shot.

4. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

How to Win Friends and Influence People is all about how to communicate and interact with people in a meaningful way. It’s full of little lessons on how to overcome conflict and inspire people to open up to you.

5. Originals by Adam Grant

It’s hard to go against the grain, especially when some of your ideas might be considered “risky.” In his new book, Originals, Adam Grant explains how individuals can champion new ideas, leaders can fight conformity, and parents and teachers can encourage children to think differently.
