To help, these recent and forthcoming books for fall offer some keen insights about leadership, technology trends and personal productivity. They were hand-picked to help business leaders grow, to challenge a rote way of thinking. Some are surprisingly counter-intuitive, but each one is worth reading as a way to expand your thinking and knowledge.
