Trending Books Mentioned at LSSO RainDance

So what are the books creating buzz among legal thought leaders at LSSO’s RainDance conference this year?

I managed to note four in particular that came up in presentations and conversations among legal sales and service leaders this year:

  1. Shift Happens” by Robert Holden, Ph.D., a book about growing through life instead of going through life;
  2. Leaders Eat Last” by Simon Sinek, author of the best-seller “Start With Why” and a renowned speaker who has given some of the most popular TED talks of all time;
  3. The End of Lawyers?” by Richard Susskind, a book about the future of legal services and how it will be shaped by four big disruptions facing law practice (technology, competition, the global move to deregulation of legal services, and the generational trend toward working differently); and
  4. Growth is Dead,” a book about the future of Big Law by Bruce MacEwen, the publisher of the popular online site, Adam Smith, Esq.

If anyone has a comment on any of these books, or wants to offer additional suggestions for further reading, feel free to share your comments on this blog.
