Posted December 31, 2013, 9:18 PM with category of General Business
We had a wonderful year here at 800-CEO-READ in 2013, in no small part due to the authors, publishers, publicists, designers, and all the others that worked on the books we sold this year&mdashand, of course, those that bought them. We compile a bestseller list each month to recognize the books we're shipping out to businesspeople, business schools, and entrepreneurs to help spread ideas, solve problems, promote change, and inspire leadership. We’ve now compiled and collated the numbers for the entire year, giving weight to both total sales numbers and how long each book stayed on the list (and at what number) and are now happy to announce 800-CEO-READ's bestsellers of 2013.

NEWS: The No Complaining Rule
Posted July 9, 2008, 3:54 PM with category of Personal Development
When I first saw the title "The No Complaining Rule" I had flashbacks to family road trips to "up north" Wisconsin, full of truly Ollie Hopnoodle-esque moments. But the title refers to a new business book about positivity: The No Complaining Rule: Positive Ways to Deal with Negativity at Work by Jon Gordon, who also wrote The Energy Bus.
