Whether you’re at the beach, the bach or just parked up on the couch, these thought-provoking books are packed full of valuable tips and insights on an array of topics, including leadership, personal development and technological disruption.

So put your feet up and dive into any (or all!) of these great summer reads, and get inspired for what you can achieve in 2019.


Leadership and management

Personal development and human behaviour

Digital disruption and new technologies

History, biographies and memoirs

  • Modern Times Revised Edition: The World from the Twenties to the Nineties
    Paul Johnson
    “This book is immensely readable and an actual page-turner of a history book! It deals with the tragedy of the twentieth century and exposes the danger of political extremism. It should caution us if we believe that the future is going to be an unbroken continuation of the peace and prosperity we have enjoyed in New Zealand for last 75 years.” – Marcus Roberts (facilitator, Contract Law for Managers)
  • 21 Lessons for the 21st Century
    Yuval Noah Harari
    “Harari is an engaging writer who grapples with the issue of what gives our lives meaning. His 21 lessons are thought provoking even though you may disagree with him on some of them.” – Andrew Eberhard (Director, Business Masters)
