WORTH READING: Get Smarter! Start the New Year With the Five Best Books I Read in 2011. What books are on your list?

Here are the best five books I’ve read this year. They are so good they are all on my top-ten of all-time list. In the comment section please share the names of the best books you’ve read this year and if you are willing add a sentence or two on what you found so good about each book.

The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt is the smartest book I’ve ever read — filled with valuable and fascinating insights and information.

Very different than the Happiness Hypothesis, The Happiness Advantage is filled with data and anecdotes demonstrating how a positive attitude -- happiness -- can improve productivity as well as enhance emotional health and satisfaction.

Provides persuasive solid evidence that good ethics can be good business. Trumps the valuable insights in "Good to Great"

Switch is a mind-expanding book on how individuals and organizations can accomplish meaningful, positive, and lasting change.

Covers similar ground as Switch but adds meaningful insights and practical strategies.

  1. My best 5 that I’ve read this year:

    1) The Bible – I get something new out of it all the time; you will see it in first place in my list every year

    2) Jesus At They Saw Him – by William Barclay. People known by the titles they carry. The same can be said about Jesus. A discovered a hidden pearl of high value when I found this book and took it home to read.

    3) Cuentos de Amigas – Laura Freixas, an anthology of stories by the leading XX Century Spanish female writers. Not only reading at least one good book written in spanish keeps my 2nd language alive and current, it sharpens all of senses and I see the world in a deeper hue, listen to new phonetic sounds, enjoy the aromas and the taste of the world!

    This year I started working in a newly created position at the company I work at and it was new for me as well. So the first thing I did was search for books by leaders in the field of Inside Sales. Two of them are:
    4) Lead Generation for the Complex Sale by Brian J. Carroll
    5) Smart Calling, Art Sobczak

  2. The best 5 books I read in 2011 all consist of textbooks. However, they are the best because I learned, I improved, and each help me get closer to my degrees.
