There are many well-written online articles on economic topics. In our Resources category, you will also find very useful links, but here we recommend books. Why is a book the best way to grasp something? Holding a book in our hands, rather than a tablet, allows us to deepen our reading and gain secure knowledge. Moreover, reading a book improves concentration and makes us happy.

Please join the virtual Konsultori book club and let’s expand the reading list together.

Citizens

Why the Key to fixing everything is all of us

‘Citizens’ is a very energetic and energizing (and maybe, at times, overly upbeat) book. At its core is an essential shift of perspective, from consumer to citizen.
It offers encouraging examples of transformation and underlines the necessity of different actors working together across institutional boundaries.

Naomi Stanford

Guide to Organisation Design

A useful introduction to the topic allows to broaden one’s perspective on organization and on how to future-proof our organizations.
I would recommend reading it together with Gareth Morgan’s ‘Images of Organizations’ which, to me, is a much more original, thought-provoking book than Frederic Laloux’ often-cited ‘Reinventing Organizations’.

Coming of Age at the End of History

It is not a business book! But who says that I can only recommend business-related books?! The unusual, exciting biography memoir of a brilliant thinker (a professor of political theory at the LSE) and a meditation on freedom and unfreedom under seemingly opposing political systems.

Powerful Tools to Change the Game in Your Most Important Deals

When it comes to getting stuck in a win-win or win-lose debate, most negotiation books focus on face-to-face tactics. Table tactics, however, are only the “first dimension”.
