News & Opinion: Books From The Pile - May 2007
We get a lot of books here at 800-CEO-READ. I would bet it is about 100 titles a month. They all end up in Jack's office and about once a month we have to clean the place up. It is always interesting to see what is being published and what titles are competing with each other.
Based on what we see, there is a solution for every problem imaginable. Here is a sample of self-help from the pile:
- Why Good Things Happen to Good People: The Exciting New Research That Proves The Link Between Doing Good and Living A Longer, Healthier, Happier Life by Stephen Post and Jill Neimark
- Why Good People Do Bad Things: Understanding Our Darker Selves by James Hollis
- You're Addicted To You: Why It's So Hard to Change—and What You Can Do About It by Noah Blumenthal
- The Happiness Myth: Why What We Think Is Right Is Wrong, A History of What Really Makes Us Happy by Jennifer Michael Hecht
