One of the most thoughtful voices on transformative challenges and disruptive change is Geoffrey Moore. His books are must-reading in business schools, but are applicable to anyone seeking significant growth or change. I’ve spoken on the topic of personal and industry change at various conferences. After one of my speeches, someone connected me to Geoff. I enjoyed meeting him since all of his books are in my private library at home: Crossing the Chasm, Inside the Tornado, The Gorilla Game, Living on the Fault Line, and Dealing with Darwin.

Twitter claims over 100 million users. You can’t watch much television without hearing about this social media behemoth. The U.S. Republican presidential debates (is it just me or are there more debates than ever?) even have questions coming from Twitter. I’ve seen CNN randomly scrolling tweets on the bottom of the screen like a stock ticker tape.
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has written two memoirs of her life. Read Extraordinary, Ordinary People and you will feel like you really know her personally. She writes about her parents’ unconditional love and the values that helped her grow into a polished diplomat. Read her latest memoir, No Higher Honor, about her time serving in the Bush administration and you will follow her experiences from National Security Advisor to Secretary of State in the aftermath of 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan and beyond.
