First, Break All the Rules by Marcus Buckingham and Curtis Coffman
Another book for my management class, but this one blew me away. For one thing this book is research based. You get advice straight from the mouths of the some of the country’s proven best managers. Though do not be afraid that this is a book of quotes and statistics because they actually do turn it into something readable. This was a book I borrowed but I found it helpful enough that I am considering getting my own copy to keep.
