Here is the June, 2021 list of best-selling business books from the New York Times – A new Kahneman book; a new book by Brad Stone on Bezos and Amazon; Atomic Habits by James Clear still #1

Here is the June, 2021 list of best-selling business books from the New York Times.  For the Atomic Habitsumpteenth month in a row (yes, umpteenth is a precise number), Atomic Habits by James Clear is at the #1 spot.  I don’t keep a record of how long it has been at the top spot, but this book has been at the top through most of the pandemic. I assume people are working on personal habits; or, at least, are wanting to work on their personal habits.

The only book that I can think of that seemed to be at the top for anything close to this length of time was Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg from quite a few years back.  (Lean In was first published in 2013, so that was a while ago. I presented my synopsis of that book in April, 2013).

In this month’s list, there are two new books that I have already selected for our Dallas event, the First Friday Book Synopsis.  I present synopses of two best-selling business books every month.  We are in our 24thyear of monthly gatherings.

NoiseFor our July 9 event (the second Friday of July), I will present my synopsis of the new Daniel Kahneman book, Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgement (co-authored with Olivier Sibony, and Cass R. Sunstein).  Mr. Kahneman’s earlier book Thinking, Fast and Slow is also a perennial best-seller.

I will also present the new book by Brad Stone: AmazonUnbound: Jeff Bezos and the Invention of a Global Empire , at the July First Friday Book Synopsis.  I presented my synopsis of his earlier book, The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon, back at the December, 2013 event.

After I present these two books, I will have presented synopses of five of the ten best-sellers from this month’s list: Atomic Habits, Noise, Dare to Lead, Extreme Ownership, and Amazon Unbound.

I’m a fan of reading good and useful books, and this list always provides plenty of good and useful choices.
