Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies

Creation: Life and Ho to Make It

Author: Steve Grand

This is the autobiography of the founder of Walmart, where he explains how he created his successful company and what are its most important principles, as well as the values ​​​​that have been upheld until now. One of the key points is the openness to try new things and make mistakes, this in order to grow.

The Black Swan

Author: Nassim Taleb

No, it has nothing to do with the Natalie Portman movie. Bezos said that this book provides something very important, an escape.

“The scholar argues that people are programmed to see patterns in chaos while remaining blind to unpredictable events, with massive consequences. Experimentation and empiricism trump the easy, obvious narrative,” Stone said.

The Innovator’s Dilemma

Author: Clayton Christensen

This book explains the importance of innovation with a disruptive character, it is even one of the most recommended by Michael Bloomberg, CEO of Bloomberg.

This was the book that led to the creation of Kindle, under the idea that something new and different is not going to alienate people, but can give you a new business opportunity and end up changing the world. Christensen says that resisting change is a big mistake.
