News & Opinion: Fast Company continues to support books

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:11 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Fast Company since its inception has supported new business thought. You can look at the profiles of people like Watts Wacker and George Stalk. You can point back to the classic covers of The Brand Called You and Free Agent Nation.

I am happy to see that commitment continue with the new leadership and ownership at the magazine. The November issue has three (count them THREE) piece by Lucas Conley, their new book reviewer. He starts with a piece called Year of the Economist, where he talks all the hub-bub about the dismal science. He then write a feature article on our friends over at Berrett-Koehler (they have a really different model for publishing). He ends with the Reading List (here and here) which includes this month Smartbomb, One Billion Customers, and Let My People Go Surfing.
