Current Reading List

So here is a breakdown of the books and magazines that are currently on the ole nightstand:

1. Fast Company– the best magazine out there for innovative business ideas. Period.

2. Starfish and the Spider– a great read focused on the difference between a hierarchial organization and one that is decentralized. 

3. They Like Jesus But Not the Church– from my friend Dan Kimball. Provoking, inspiring, and great for discussion among peers. 

4. The Wisdom of Crowds– Similar in many ways to The Tipping Point, but some insightful thoughts on how crowds can lead, learn, and provide hints on the way things work.

5.  The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive– a classic from Patrick Lencioni. 

6.  Know How– by Ram Charan. Ram is a genius when it comes to execution and creating solutions for getting things done. 

7.  Simply Christian– by NT Wright. Been reading this one for quite a while. It is an instant classic. 

What are you reading?

  1. Reading UnChristian right now by David Kinnaman. Sounds like it might be similar to The Like Jesus but Not the Church. It’s breaking my heart and rocking my world. Next up is 5 Dysfunctions of a Team.

  2. The Tangible Kingdom – Hugh Halter
    Vintage Jesus – Mark Driscoll
    The Reason for God – Tim Keller

    I’m with you on Fast Company. That’s the only mag I still read.

    I LOVED Starfish and the Spider…would love to dialog about ti with you and some other leaders.

  3. I loved Starfish and the Spider, as well . . . fantastic book.

    Right now I’m reading:
    Leadership and Self-Deception
    Simple Church (it’s a re-read with the leadership team)
    Transfer of Power (a fiction book)
    I just ordered The Shack and Chasing Cool
