The Business Insider list of 15 Most Influential Business Books of 2015 is worth a look. Yes, there is the inevitable Elon Musk monograph by Ashlee Vance, but there are also some surprises.

‘Rise of the Robots’ by Martin Ford looks at the future of AI, and how it will replace many of the jobs that are now done by intelligent humans. Will this lead to a world of leisure, or increasing complexity?

Some selections:

‘Restart’ by Mihir Sharma examines the economic crisis that India weathered and overcame, only to start slipping into the doldrums again. There are differences and parallels to our situation in Africa, so it’s essential reading for anyone wanting a big picture understanding of global economics.

‘Digital Gold’ by Nathaniel Popper gives new insight into the Bitcoin phenomenon.

There are several more that you might want to add to your bookshelf, with convenient links to online stores.

Happy reading!
