My top five books I read in 2021 (as a marketer)

This year I read 23 books in total. 7 of them in English and the rest in Korean. I found most books are about business, marketing and psychology.


My last book of the year is probably going to be this book I recently bought: Start With Why by Simon Sinek. I love Adam Grant’s and Simon Sinek’s books, so it is really great to finish the year by reading one of their books.


I tried hard to read books about investment but I ended up reading only 2. I guess everyone has their cup of tea.


A few English books I really loved reading are;

📚The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

📚21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John Maxwell

📚Originals by Adam Grant

📚How Charts Lie by Alberto Cairo

📚Start With Why by Simon Sinek


My goal is to read 46 books in 2022 and read more books about the topics I am not familiar with. I will keep posting reviews as I read the books on my list.


Some of the books on my list are;

  • Advice for Future Corpes by Sallie Tisdale

  • Factfulness by Anna Rosling Rönnlund

  • Habitus by Doris Martin

  • Pricing by Herman Simon

  • No Rules Rules by Reed Hasting

  • The Social Animal by David Brooks

  • Positioning by Al Ries and Jack Trout

  • Principles by Ray Dalio
