The Best Business and Leadership Books of 2018

I always look forward to the year's Best Business and Leadership Books. The books on the list tend to run entire gamuts, from theory to practical, from past history to current events to the future of industry. There are books to make you more successful--or you can read about people who are (financially, at least) far more successful than the majority of us. There's a lot of optimism in a list like this (and just in time for New Year, New You). There's also a lot of practical advice.

Here are five titles from the list. You can see the full list here. Enjoy.

Astroball: The New Way to Win It All by Ben Reiter - I love this story: When Sports Illustrated declared on the cover of a June 2014 issue that the Houston Astros would win the World Series in 2017, people thought Ben Reiter, the article’s author, was crazy. He wasn't, and here's the story behind his audacious, and accurate, declaration.
