I’ve never met a person who’s gone broke buying books.
☝🏽That’s something I’ll stand by forever. A good book can change your outlook, your mood and open you up to a new way of thinking. It can change the course of your day, week and even your life.
Books are invaluable.
Which is why reading is fundamental to how we learn at Drift. It’s fundamental to how I approach problems and search for inspiration. And that’s why I’m always looking for that next great read. And why I reached out to this amazing community at the end of last year to hear must-reads for 2020.
So here it is, 50 books on my must-read list this year.

The Must-Read Books On Business
How you position your business and the trust customers have in your brand is everything. The titles in this section touch on how and how NOT to approach business in 2020. In particular, The Cluetrain Manifesto is one I’d recommend to almost anyone. Because it looks at how the dawn of the modern internet has changed every facet of our culture, how we do business and how people interact with companies.
The Must-Read Books On Empowerment
If you read my newsletter last week, you know we’re working hard to make Drift, tech, and frankly, corporate America, a friendlier place for women, people of color and other minority groups. That’s why I was especially drawn to these books on empowerment. And why I’ll be making my way through this list this year:
The Must-Read Books On Personal Development
Thinking In Bets was one of my favorite books in 2019. Written by professional poker player Annie Duke, the book is perfect for not just leaders like myself who make big decisions everyday, but those who struggle to “think on their feet.” The books in this section are must-reads for anyone looking to get better every day.
The Must-Read Books For Fantastic Storytelling
Malcolm Gladwell has always been a go-to for me. His approach to non-fiction is masterful. Talking To Strangers offers some of the best insight into his writing process and how others can become more mindful listeners – and learners. Here, other top picks on storytelling:
