Top 10 Business Bestsellers of 2010. What have you read/liked?

It happens that I do not like a bestselling book or don't find it inspiring even when it seems that the whole world does. I don't follow bestselling lists blindly or like everything I find there. I suppose it happens to you too. I will resist this time listing books everyone seem to worship, that left me cold, could hardly read first fifty pages, and gave up.

Other coaches and consultants I worked with call me a fast reader and as a Maximizer (Strengths Finder 2.0) I am supposed to read a lot. I do. And I like to compare whatever I read with my life/world/business experiences, or to what the others I know have been through.

Sometimes I change my mind or sometimes I just change the book.

Looking through bestselling books of 2010. selected by Inc. magazine and 800CEOread blog. I found few titles I would like to check out. They have compiled the list giving weight to both total sales numbers and how long each book stayed on the list.

Here is their monthly list of 10 bestsellers that business people were buying for themselves and their teams

1. Strengths Finder 2.0 by Tom Rath; Gallup Press. (I included it in my SUCCESS LIBRARY in 2009.) and you can see my top 5 talent themes according to this book in COACHING page. What are yours?

2. The Go-Giver: A Little Story about a Powerful Business Idea by Bob Burg, John David Mann; Portfolio.

3. Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard by Cheap Heath, Dan Heath; Broadway.

4. Love Leadership: New Way to Lead in a Fear-Based World by John Hope Bryant; Jossey Bass. (it's a man author, if you like me thought it must be a woman who writes Love Leadership title)
