A lifelong habit of mine has been to read the Sunday edition of the New York Times, which includes the New York Times Book Review. On March 14 The New York Times published online an interview with Sheryl Sandberg in their “By the Book” feature with a shorter version in the March 17 paper edition (p.8). Which author from the past or today would Sandberg most like to meet -- J. K. Rowling.
Here are some of Sheryl Sandberg’s choices:
Best book in past year: “Bossypants” by Tina Fey
Best business book in recent years: “Now Discover Your Strengths” by Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton
Best book for business executives: “Conscious Business: How to Build Value Through Values” by Fred Kofman
Best book on technology: “The Lean Startup: How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses” by Eric Rie
Most cherished book: Books from college course on American poets
Book for all children to read: “Free To Be You and Me” by Marlo Thomas
My “to read” list is now longer.
