Best Business Books 2017: Management
There are multiple aspects to being an effective manager, but the bottom line is: you will be responsible for overseeing and supervising a company's activities and employees. Besides thoroughly understanding the business, you also have to be a motivator, a leader. Given all that, I still feel like being a manager is possibly the best job in the world, and the most complex. There are thousands of books about management but what follows are those that have withstood the test of time. So, whether you are a manager or hope to be one, these books will help you move towards that goal. A cautionary note: the publishing dates given are the original date of publication unless noted.

Friederike Fabritius and Hans W. Each year, scores of management books claim significant new scientific findings in the pursuit of an unchanging goal: how to perform better, both individually and in groups. But most of those so-called findings are neither scientific nor new. However, a refreshing wave of insight has flooded into the management space in recent years thanks to neuroscience, the rapidly evolving study of how our brains work and how we might use that knowledge to make better decisions, break bad habits, and generally live our best lives.

Rachel is the principal and a co-founder of Community Roundtable , a firm that collaborates with clients to develop proven, practical strategies for better engagement, relying on models, research and networks to take their communities to the next level. It's an excellent list but I noticed the lack of women authors and I commented on that, which led to a long stream of recommendations. In my domain of business, strategy, and leadership I've also noticed a gap in women authors and I thought it was worthwhile to compile a list that was not books targeted at women but books about strategy and leadership that happen to be written by women. There is some cross-over; obviously, the experience of being a woman in leadership today provides an experience worth discussing, but that is not the predominant focus of this list.
