Whether you’re an entrepreneur or a seasoned executive, the holiday season is an ideal time for professional and personal reflection.
While it’s best to reflect and revisit goals throughout the year, sometimes it just doesn’t happen, and there’s nothing like a captivating book to get your mind moving again in the right direction (like towards that skill you promised yourself you’d pick up last year).
Our team at Singularity University loves to geek out on subjects ranging from emerging technologies and science fiction to leadership development and mental fortitude.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite books from this year (and a few classics) to get you activated. There’s nothing like a new year to get kickstarted on what you want to learn. We hope this list helps you do just that.
