I've been at the Wiley P/T sales conference all week and one of my favorite things to do afterward is talk about some of the cool books that were presented. I admit that my favorites tend to be non-computer books, but that doesn't mean I don't love the tech category!
First up is the next in the enormously successful The Little Book of... series. This one is called The Little Book that Makes You Rich, by Louis Navellier and is sure to be a hit. I've posted before on other titles in The Little Book of... series and I absolutely love all three of them; I'm also proud to report that at market close today, I'm up 12% on the stock and index fund investments I made in the past year from earlier books in this series. Your mileage may vary, of course, but I'm delighted with my results!
Speaking of huge franchises, the next likely blockbuster from Patrick Lencioni is called The Three Signs of a Miserable Job and is due to be published in August. I can't wait! I've read and reviewed several of Lencioni's earlier works and they're all fantastic.
Finally, the book I'm most looking forward to reading is Harvey Frommer's Five O'Clock Lightning: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and the Greatest Baseball Team in History, the 1927 New York Yankees. And what perfect timing: The book is scheduled for release in late October, right about the time Red Sox fans will be licking their wounds watching the Yankees go all the way again!
