The Top 11 Business Books To Look Out For in Q4

In July, I wrote that there were a lot of great books coming out in Q3. I was right. The Innovators, A Sense of Style, Zero to One, How Google Works…. Each of these and a few others made several bestseller lists.

Luckily, there are a lot of great books to look forward to in Q4. Like last time, I scoured the coming soon section of a few major retailers, picked 11 notable releases, and listed them below. I’m especially excited for three: Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products by Nir Eyal, Fail Better: Design Smart Mistakes and Succeed Sooner by Anjali Sastry & Kara Penn, and The Best Place to Work: The Art and Science of Creating an Extraordinary Workplace by Ron Friedman PhD.
