Celebrity Picks: Scott Adams's Favorite Reads of 2017

Jon Foro on January 03, 2018

Scott-Adams225.jpgOutside of Donald Trump, not many foresaw his stunning victory in the 2016 presidential election. (Inside Donald Trump, it's too dark to read a trend line.) Scott Adams did. The Dilbert creator—and trained hypnotist—recognized in the unconventional candidate a rare, maybe once-in-a-generation talent for persuasion, one that many chose either to not see or just not believe. Win Bigly examines Trump's tactics, promising “access to the admin passwords to human beings” in your own life and work. Read it before your co-workers do.

Want to expand your powers even further? You might also like to know what Adams himself reads. See his picks below, and look here for the latest celebrity favorites.
