My top business books from 2018

Although I listen to a lot of audiobooks while driving, most of them being fictional and the actual read of a book is nil apart from technical books. That was until last year when I was given a book called The Levels by Ray Moore. This planted a seed which was then germinated when I was recommended Turn the Ship Around by David Marquet.

So here is five of my favourite from 2018:-
