A little more abstract, I’ve made it a goal to read a biography of each US president. The political acumen needed during the founding of the country is a fascinating takeaway for the politics of corporate life. Another great one I love is “the 48 laws of power” by Robert Greene. Chalk full of historical anecdotes about interesting lessons to be learned throughout history.
