Sol Orwell (Co-Founder/Examine.com)I hate business books. They are full of wishy-washy inspirational stuff and rarely of anything actionable. And even when actionable, it's from the context of that founder and the story they've spun, not the reality that most people face. So if anything, I'd have people read books such as Jayson Gaignard's Mastermind Dinners; Derek Coburn's Networking is Not Working; Shane Snow's Storytelling edge; Keith Ferrazzi's Never Eat Alone.
Jay Baer (Founder/Convince & Convert)A terrific and timely book that makes a compelling case for fundamentally rethinking how your business communicates. Recommended!
