My 5 favourite books of 2012

Posted on: December 19th, 2012 by Fransgaard No Comments

With Amazon list no longer appearing on Linkedin, I thought I’d put together a post on my favourite reads of 2012. So in reverse order:

Enchantment5: Enchantment

Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds and Actions – First time I’ve read a book by Guy Kawazaki and I really enjoyed it and it made me feel positive. Will read this one again.


Return on Influence4: Return On Influence

Return On Influence: The Revolutionary Power of Klout, Social Scoring, and Influence Marketing – Mark Schaefer just thinks deeper when it comes to Social Media. Great educational book on the subject.


Akira3: AKIRA

AKIRA book 1-6 – I went to the Katsuhiro Otomo exhibition, Genga, and realised how different the books are from the AKIRA movie and decided to read them. What an epic story.


Star With Why2: Start With Why

Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action – Great concept, easy to understand with good examples. Inspired me to rewrite my Linkedin profile.


Hi! I'm Loco1: Hi! My Name is Loco and I am a Racist

Hi! My Name is Loco and I am a Racist – Baye McNeil and I have nothing in common… yet so many things are related to my own life and experiences. And I love how the story continued in social media.


… and the biggest disappointment goes to 1Q84

1Q84 started of with two really good books and I enjoyed the weird surreal parallel universe to 1984 depicted in the books. However, the third book did not offer any conclusion to the story and was frankly boring beyond reason compared the the first two. This unfortunately meant the whole trilogy was ruined leaving me feeling I have wasted my time reading them.
