5 Must-Read Books for Career Success


When I reached out to dozens of colleagues to ask what their favorite people management book was, The One Minute Manager received the most mentions. Consider this super-short book a “management for dummies” that’s really very smart.


My all-time favorite book on networking. As you might guess from the title, Never Eat Alone is about why you need to spend more time networking. This book is about genuine relationship building and the mutual benefit that you and another person can provide each other.


The Remix contains all of my latest research and advice on how to lead a team and manage your own career in today’s unprecedented five-generation workplace. The Remix was selected as a Wall Street Journal and Financial Times book of the month.

Whether you’re graduating from college, starting a career, trying to gain financial independence, or creating meaningful relationships—entering into the world of grownups can be more than a little overwhelming. This book can help.


This book changed my life by introducing me to the concept of a virtual assistant, who works remotely and eases the life of an entrepreneur by handling time-consuming tasks such as answering common e-mail requests, booking travel and scheduling meetings. This book still receives major buzz and for good reason.
