This week we've got 3 new book summaries for you that you can watch or listen to for the week of December 5th.

Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi

Keith Ferrazzi believes real networking is about finding ways to make other people more successful. His book Never Eat Alone is a full course banquet of advice on the subject.

Decisive by Chip and Dan Heath

Why is it that we can like or dislike people long before we know much about them? Why is it we distrust strangers without knowing why? Why on the other hand do we give too much weight to the information that’s right in front of us, while failing to consider the information that’s just offstage?

These are the problems that Chip and Dan Heath have set out to address in their book Decisive. How can we do better?

The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli

The description "Machiavellian" conjures up unscrupulous, opportunistic, amoral characteristics. But can we apply any of Niccolo Machiavelli's lessons in today's business world?

If we replace competitive city states with competitive businesses, ambitious growth plans for territory with ambitious growth plans for market share and attainment of assets though conflict with attainment of assets through mergers and acquisition... then the parallels are there for all to see.

Busy, right? We hope that you enjoy this weeks books. Enjoy with me in the pursuit of creativity and growth.
