From the journey of senior executives to issues of gender and data bias, each month, we’ll discuss one recently released book, and add a new one to the list, so you'll be able to plan ahead.

Our first four books are recent releases that have been very well received. Together they give a sense of the books we’ll read: the first follows the journey of a senior executive in a given company and industry; the second book looks at issues of gender and data bias; and the third and fourth address important geopolitical and economic trends.
