Jack Covert Selects: A New Season begins - August 2007 Books
I know it is only a few of days into August, but we are starting to see and think about the fall.
Jack is quoted today in a Bloomburg News story about Dream Manager by Matthew Kelly. He is a little more positive about the book than might be evident from the quote. We'll be featuring it as a Jack Covert Selects this month.
I have been reading a really interesting book called Super Crunchers by Ian Ayres. I am writing a couple of posts now about the book and we'll be reviewing it this month as well.
Here are couple other titles making an August release:
- Recruit or Die: How Any Business Can Beat the Big Guys in the War for Young Talent by Chris Resto, Ian Ybarra, and Ramit Sethi
- What Made Jack Welch Jack Welch: How Ordinary People Become Extraordinary Leaders by Stephen H. Baum with Dave Conti
- Remarkable Leadership: Unleashing Your Leadership Potential One Skill At A Time by Kevin Eikenberry
