Reading Material

Predictably Irrational

Why do our headaches persist after we take a one-cent aspirin but disappear when we take a fifty-cent aspirin? Why do we splurge on a lavish meal but cut coupons to save twenty-five cents on a can of soup? This book has the answer! If as a marketer you only read (or listen to) one book this year, this should be it. Why? It can show you how to articulate why what you do truly matters to other leaders in your company.

Deep Work

Deep thinking to make connections and solve problems is what makes humans stand apart from the bots. Author and professor Cal Newport flips the narrative on impact in a connected age. Instead of arguing distraction is bad, he instead celebrates the power of its opposite. Dividing this book into two parts, he first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits. He then presents a rigorous training regimen, presented as a series of four “rules,” for transforming your mind and habits to support this skill.

Two U.S. Navy SEAL officers who led the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War demonstrate how to apply powerful leadership principles from the battlefield to business and life. We recommend listening to the audio book since it is narrated by the authors.
