Tom Peters: 2014 Reading List

By Scott Kirsner |  December 23, 2013

When was the last time someone handed you a reading list? College? Grad school?

At a small gathering held recently to mark the 20th anniversary of the business magazine Fast Company, Tom Peters, the management author and provocateur, circulated the latest iteration of his recommended reading list. It’s a fantastic collection of 52 books, predominantly from the past five years, that Tom considers essential reads. They cover everything from big data to robotics to gamification to loyalty to neurotechnology. I wanted to share them with you here. Tom singled out a few titles as extra-emphatic recommendations; those are marked with an asterisk.
