In fact, not only do most executives continually cycle through titles on leadership, technology, and personal improvement, but many also gift and recommend their top books to their peers and direct reports.
“My best friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read.”
In interviewing top technology leaders for The National CIO Review, one of my go-to questions is asking which books a CIO, CTO, or the like would recommend to an up and coming leader, perhaps books that they have on their CIO Bookshelf or titles that they regularly gift. Often these are new titles but there are always the classic tomes that they come back to regularly.
So what books should be on your CIO Bookshelf?
Check out these titles from a few technology industry thought leaders.
