Not-Boring Business Books, Plus Nonfiction Lists Galore

The post was a lot of fun to write, and includes several of my favorites including Bad Blood by John Carreyrou and The Great Beanie Baby Bubble by Zac Bissionnette.

And that’s it’s for this week! You can find me on Twitter @kimthedork, on email at, and co-hosting the For Real podcast here at Book Riot. Happy reading! – Kim
