Summer Reading

The warm weather is back…well, the warmer weather is back in Los Angeles for the summer. If you plan to spend your weekends reading on the sand or even by the pool, pick up a career advice book instead of that trashy beach novel. I have read several career advice books over the past few years, and I recommend the following as the best of the lot:

o “Getting from College to Career: 90 Things to Do Before You Join the Real World” by Lindsey Pollak
o “The Go-Getter Girl’s Guide: Get What You Want in Work and Life” By Debra Sigley
o “Effective Immediately: How to Fit In, Stand Out, and Move Up at Your First Real Job” by Emily Bennington

Books on career advancement are one of my favorite genres and my reading is never done. I plan to spend the summer reading the following books:

o “@ the Entry Level: On Survival, Success & Your Calling as a Young Professional” By Michael Ball
o “They Don’t Teach Corporate in College: A Twenty-Something’s Guide to the Business World” By Alexandra Levit
o “The 80/20 Principle: The Secret to Achieving More with Less” By Richard Koch
o “Do More Great Work: Stop the Busywork, and Start the Work That Matters” By Michael Bungay Stanier
o “If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You” By Kelly Cutrone
o “20-Something, 20-Everything: A Quarter-Life Women’s Guide to Balance and Direction” By Christine Hassler
o “Think: Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-Down World” By Lisa Bloom
o “I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This: Success Secrets Every Gutsy Girl Should Know” By Kate White
