The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

Business travel inevitably entails a certain amount of business waiting. There are flights, commutes that last a bit longer than they should, potential layovers and unexpected bouts of downtime between power meetings. What to do? Nothing averts and edifies your mind better than a darn good read. Here are a few titles to crack open during your next retreat, conference or business trip.

  1. 'Pivot' by Jenny Blake

Author Jenny Blake is a virtual master of reinvention, offering an exclusive master class on making a career change in her book Pivot. Before publishing her first book, Life After College, Blake worked at Google on the Google AdWords product training team and the Google Career Guru program. In Pivot, Blake teaches valuable skills that are useful to the act of switching careers or enriching an existing career.

  1. 'Designing Your Life' by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans

This book by Stanford University design program professors Burnett and Evans is easily a continuation of Blake's treatise. Burnett and Evans parlay the time-tested principles of design theory into an accessible, effective technique for building the sort of personal and professional life you desire -- on purpose.

  1. 'Influence' and 'Pre-Suasion' by Robert B. Cialdini, Ph.D.

Widely considered a must-read for business students and seasoned professionals, Influence unveils seemingly magical techniques on compliance tactics that get customers and potential partners to say "yes." Influence combines clinical research and Dr. Cialdini's years of experience as a salesperson and successful fundraiser.

Dr. Cialdini's sequel, so to speak, Pre-Suasion, is's Best Sales and Marketing Book of 2016. In each chapter, Dr. Cialdini demystifies proven strategies for changing states of mind -- yours and others -- so as to make people more receptive to your message.

  1. 'Shoe Dog' by Phil Knight

Ever wonder how to build a multi-billion-dollar international empire from scratch? Phil Knight's Shoe Dog does exactly that, chronicling the life of the former Nike chairman. Fresh out of college, Night began selling running shoes out of his parents' garage.

Today, Nike enjoys a market cap of roughly $88 billion and is the largest athletic company in the world. Knight's memoir leaves no stone unturned. Gracefully written and refreshingly engaging, Shoe Dog is your go-to business-oriented leisure title for your next trip.
