Request for business book suggestions

Here’s the context:

Here’s the link: https://personalmba.com/best-business-books/

Criticism of Kaufman’s list aside, his book Personal MBA itself is quite good and I’ve read it several times.

Boneflour also recommended Thiel’s book Zero to One and I’ll second that one too.

I think I actually did this once for the psychology section and I recently created a list for sales with the normies:

Mine:
To Sell Is Human by Daniel Pink
The Psychology of Selling by Brian Tracy
Selling to Big Companies by Jill Konrath
I started Sales Fundamentals for Technical Specialists by Janne Korhonen but didn’t finish it. It seemed pretty good.

His:
The Sales Bible, Jeffrey Gitomer
Sell or Be Sold, Grant Cardone

If I had to brainstorm my psychology list again in a couple minutes, I’d say Ian Deary’s intro to intelligence book, Paul Fussell’s Class, and Haidt’s book on moral foundations. Tier 2 would be de Botton’s Status Anxiety, Drive by Daniel Pink, and Self-Directed Behavior by Watson and Tharp, and maybe The Laws of Human Nature by Robert Greene.
