News & Opinion: Finding new books to read.

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:59 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Ben Casnocha (My Start-Up Life) blogged about and added to Tyler Cohen's (Discover Your Inner Economist) post on how to find new book recommendations. Both have good recommendations on where to start.
Ben mentioned us as the spot to find out about business books (thanks, Ben!). On that note, allow me to introduce you to what's available:
  • Excerpts blog where you can read excerpts from the latest books.

  • Podcasts. Clips from various audio books and our interviews with authors.

  • ChangeThis. We call this the Harvard Business Review with a bit more color.

If there's ever a book you'd like to see, drop us a note: kate (at) We'll see what we can do.
Another spot, there's a site called Goodreads; kind of the MySpace equivalent for readers. Where you can share what you're reading with friends, keep lists of what you have read and want to read, and find fellow readers to share book suggestions with.
Where else do you look?
