Balmy Business Books for a Sweltering Summer

July 22, 2022

There’s nothing quite like the pleasure of a good book. And with temperatures rising nearly everywhere, now is a great time to grab a frosty beverage, settle into your comfiest chair, and lose yourself in a good story.

Here's what some of America’s sharpest business minds have enjoyed over the last year:

  • Indra Nooyi, former CEO of PepsiCo. — suggests “Out of Many, One” by George W. Bush for those interested in a deeply heartfelt collection of portraits and immigration stories by George W. Bush.
  • Rosalind “Roz” Brewer, CEO Walgreens Boots Alliance — enjoyed “The Heart of Business: Leadership Principles for the Next Era of Capitalism” by Hubery Joly for exploring the management philosophy that transformed one of America’s best-known electronics vendors, Best Buy.

  • Robert Iger, former CEO of the Walt Disney Company — connected with "Max Perkins: Editor of Genius" by A. Scott Berg. Iger found Perkins' extraordinary eye for fledgling talent impressive considering that it led to the rise of several of the 20th century's literary giants, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Thomas Wolfe.
