What CIOs Read!

December 12, 2018


No one can argue with the tenet that reading is essential for self-development.  Yet many of us struggle with finding the time to devote to such an important endeavor.  


Amazon of course has made it easier for us to sample or even “try before we buy” with its invaluable “Send a Free Sample” button.  Give it a try and I promise you will be hooked!



But where should one start?  Which books are considered the building blocks of development for an established or emerging leader?


The National CIO Review, in our interviews with leading CIOs, has compiled a list of recommended books worth sharing.  But of course, we would love to hear your favorites as well.  Drop me a line at with any books that you think should be at the top of the list.
