  • Thick Face, Black Heart: The Asian Path to Thriving, Winning & Succeeding, by Chin-Ning Chu

​This guide fuses the wisdom of the East and West and explores how ancient Asian battle strategies and cultural mindsets can be applied today to achieve mental toughness and winning business techniques. Drawn from a formula for mental toughness devised in a 1911 handbook for success called "Thick Black Theory" (which has been banned in China ever since), this book argues that there can be no real enlightenment without a full awareness of the dark side. To achieve success in professional and personal lives, one must "thicken" one's face to create a shield that preserves natural self-esteem, and "blacken" one's heart. The result is a definition of the successful modern business hero as a person of unceasing contemplation and unfettered action. The utilization of the power of this book allows each reader to discover the destiny to which one must be true. Going beyond Sun Tzu's "Art of War", this book shows readers how to: find the inner warrior, and conquer all in one's path; claim one's natural right to dazzling wealth; apply deception without sin to win the deal one wants; dare to succeed by cultivating the courage to fail; use the art of deception without compromising values to win the deal one wants; unchain a killer instinct in the service of a life-affirming cause, and transform negative qualities to one's advantage. Chin-Ning Chu is the author of "The Asian Mind Game".

  • Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, by Daniel Pink

In Drive, Daniel Pink upends much about what we think motivates employees by arguing that humans are not motivated by salary or other extrinsic factors but instead are motivated by intrinsic factors.

To motivate employees beyond these, managers need to keep three factors in mind: autonomy, mastery, and purpose. Keeping these intrinsic desires central will help lead to increased satisfaction and performance.

Time is precious, but the minutes your team spends reading meaningful articles and books will be well worth the professional and personal development that comes from them.

  • Mes secrets d'investisseur - Start-up, crypto-monnaies et création d'entreprise, de Gabriel Jarrosson et Xavier Niel

Organisé autour de trois leviers importants d'investissement, tous pratiqués par l'auteur : le financement de start-up, l'achat/revente de cryptomonnaies (Bitcoin pour la plus connue...mais il en existe aujourd'hui plusieurs dizaines), et l'entrepreneuriat (la création et la développement d'entreprise), le livre est un condensé particulièrement efficace de ce qu'il faut faire (et que l'on vous cache) et de ce qu'il ne faut pas faire (et que les banques vous poussent à faire). 
Dans une économie de désintermédiation alors même que les banques, courtiers et autres conseils pratiquent la " taxe à l'essieu " pour dégager des marges plus importantes... à leur profit, il faut donc prendre les choses personnellement en main, et c'est ce que permet ce livre décapant.
