We are eternal optimists at Croixstone Consulting and, therefore, love Inc. Magazine’s list of “The 10 Most Inspiring Books of 2018.” Faithful readers of this blog and Croixstone’s social media channels know that we adore “Rebel Talent” by Harvard Business School professor Francesca Gino. It speaks to the benefits of constructive nonconformity and our fondness for business mavericks. And we plan to read Bill Gates’ favorite book of all time, “The Better Angels of Our Nature”, that came out in January. Read the list of 2018’s most inspiring books here.
