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.
BUT WHERE ARE THEY?
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.
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.
Here's my list so far:
- 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
