Strategy Reads: Two book suggestions to help in business and life

These two titles come highly recommended.

There’s no shortage of books on incorporating strategy every aspect of your professional and personal lives, but these two titles come highly recommended.

“Leadership Strategy and Tactics: Field Manual” by Jocko Willink has been called the ultimate guide to leadership.

As a New York Times bestselling author, Willink is not only a writer and podcaster, but he’s also a retired, decorated Navy offer that served in the Navy SEALs as a member of SEAL Team 3.

In the book, Willink serves up advice on taking leadership theory and translating it into applicable strategy, allowing the plan to be put into action at a tactical level.

Simply put, it helps strategize playing the leadership game and winning it.


“The Art of Strategic Decision Making: How to Make Tough Decisions Quickly, Intelligently, and Safely (Think Smarter, Not Harder)” by Peter Hollins speaks to those who feel overwhelmed and paralyzed by choices. That is something all of us struggle with, especially when we are feeling inundated and stressed.

This book helps beat analysis paralysis and make smarter choices by understanding the science behind weighing pros and cons and critical thinking.

The only question is, do you want it in hardcover, soft cover, Kindle or audio book?
