What Sheryl Sandberg says

This book had a profound effect on my career and life. I think about its lessons almost every day — the importance of authentic communication, impeccable commitments, being a player not a victim, and taking responsibility. I have given this book to so many team members at work, and I’ve seen it inspire people overnight to be more aware of their actions and impact on others.

Blue Ocean Strategy

by
About
The Book
Blue Ocean Strategy argues that cutthroat competition results in nothing but a bloody red ocean of rivals fighting over a shrinking profit pool. The authors argue that lasting success comes not from battling competitors but from creating ‘blue oceans’ i.e.,— untapped new market spaces ripe for growth. This book presents a systematic approach to making the competition irrelevant and outlines principles and tools any organization can use to create and capture their own blue oceans.

I was particularly influenced by this book. Based upon meticulous research the authors discovered some of the enduring core elements that special companies share. ‘Built to Last’ also provided insight and guidance on the elements we at Cognizant needed to maintain our unique qualities. This book stands out as one of those that I appreciate more with the passing of time, and in this economy, is as valuable as ever.

Although a bit too enterprise (vs consumer) focused for my taste, this is an extremely intelligent and useful book. You’ve probably heard about the central thesis (lots of startups get stuck in the “chasm”- in between early adopter and mainstream customers) but there are lots of other juicy anecdotes in the book and it actually prescribes an actionable set of strategies for overcoming the chasm. I’ve reread this one a couple of times. The sequel Inside the Tornado is good too.

‘Real economists’ talk about the economics of information goods (roughly defined as zero marginal cost goods). Sometimes a bit obvious if you’ve studied economics before but overall a really interesting read. Especially like the parts on different ways to tier pricing for information goods.

An amazing book and probably the single most important contribution to tech theory. Popularized the often misused phrase “disruptive technology.” But there’s a lot more than that one big idea, including how markets commoditize over time, how disruptive technologies always look like toys to the powerful incumbents, etc.

More than two decades after Warren [Buffett] lent it to me—and more than four decades after it was first published—Business Adventures remains the best business book I’ve ever read . . . Brooks’s deeper insights about business are just as relevant today as they were back then.

What Glenn Hubbard says

While Brooks died in 1993, this recently rereleased collection of business stories from his New Yorker articles decades ago brings classic explanations of growth (Xerox Corp.’s early years) and poor decisions (Ford Motor Co.’s problematic launch of the Edsel) that should inform and captivate business executives and students of business alike.
