Reading good books helps visionary leaders sharpen their foresight and imagination. Below are my top picks:
1. The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains, by Nicholas Carr
How is all this constant Web browsing affecting our brains? Technology and culture writer Nicholas Carr argues that the internet, by instantly serving massive volumes of information, is making us expert skimmers and scanners, flitting and darting from one distraction to the next. The result is shallow thinking and the loss of our ability to concentrate, focus, and reflect. The Shallows will motivate you to read more books, which, unlike the internet, train our brains to pay attention and engage in deep thought.
