I'm working on a secret project (you'll see it soon!) and I've started researching business books written by Asian American authors.

Similar to representation in media, I am also inspired by seeing other Asian Americans business leaders.




If you Google "Asian American business others," you'll get lists of fiction writers, but no non-fiction writer lists.  So I Googled "best business books" and then looked up the headshots.

Where's the color?


I'm not questioning the wealth of knowledge these men have. They are brilliant and I highly recommend their books.


But why do I have to search so hard to find Asian-American business and personal development authors that have made these lists?


I did find a few and I had to expand my definition of business books to include personal development books too.


Business Books by Asian American Authors


Here's my list so far:


  • Grit
  • Delivering Happiness
  • The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement
  • Running Lean
  • Scaling Lean
  • The Alchemist
  • The Checklist Manifesto
  • If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Happy
  • Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It
  • Anything by Deepak Chopra
  • The Right-Brain Business Plan
