The 10 Best Business Books of 2016 for Advisors

With so many new business books published this year, it’s hard find the titles that will really make a difference to financial professionals. We pored over 200 new titles to find the books most focused on the needs of our readers and best able to help you be more targeted in serving your clients. Unlike previous years, 2016 did not produce a blockbuster finance book (think Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century from two years ago). But that allowed us to go far afield to recommend deserving books that help you do your job better. Most of the books are published by mainstream publishers, but this year the list includes two self-published works. As always, we include a novel set in the world of finance whose fictional themes offer lessons just as pertinent as those of the nonfiction titles. All prices are for the print edition; most are available as ebooks or audiobooks. Happy reading.
