^^^ cannot recommend highly enough. I gave a copy to a friend when he went to college, and have another copy for a mentee. Fantastic.
Also have read:
Good to Great
The Goal (also highly recommend, even though it reads somewhat like a novel)
One Phone Call Away (good for networking, even though the author Really Likes Himself)
On Writing Well (fantastic)
Win Friends and Influence People
- and there's one also about public speaking that Dale Carnegie wrote, that too is great.
Speak like Churchill, Stand like Lincoln (more for speaking than anything)
StrengthsFinder (um, not worth it IMHO)
48 Laws of Power (Did not like)
There are a few more that aren't coming to mind (posting from the office right now), and a few I've yet to read, including First, Break all the Rules
, and Creative Destruction
. Not sure when I'll get to them.
