The year 2020 has been hugely successful for those of us who have an inner writer brewing somewhere inside them. 2020 was the year of free time, which led to an increased interest in not only writing but reading, too! Although there has been an increase in writing across all genres, we were particularly interested in the business books that were released this year. We have compiled a list of the top five best business books of 2020. These are books that were not only informative but also creative. They tell a story while simultaneously giving the reader information that is crucial. 

Top 5 Best Business Books of 2020

1. “No Filter” by Sarah Frier

Have you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall inside Silicon Valley? Well, Frier makes that possible with her incredible storytelling and in-depth reporting. Even The New York Times is calling it “the most-entertaining book.” She takes a business story and turns it into a riveting story about the harsh realities of the grasp social media has on our daily lives. 

2. “Reimagining Capitalism: How Business Can Save the World” by Rebecca Henderson

The world is quite literally on fire. As if 2020 hasn’t been enough of a dumpster fire, we continue not to take the threat of climate change seriously. We are in a desperate need to figure out an action plan, and it starts with capitalism. This book by a Harvard professor is an incredible insight into what we can do to get back on the right track. 

3. “Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism” by Anne Case and Angus Deaton

The American Dream has slowly begun to die year after year. The whole concept of doing better than our parents isn’t as realistic as it used to be. Not to mention that the death rates of White, working-class Americans have risen while life expectancy has declined. Anne Case came to this conclusion and realized that it is a problem that needs to be discussed. In this best-selling book, you dive into what’s going wrong and how we can fix it. 

4. “A World Without Work” by Daniel Susskind

“I, Robot” called it back in 2004, and robots will soon be ruling the world. For now, they’re starting by taking our jobs. The debate surrounding whether this is a good or bad thing has been around for ages. Susskind reminds us of this in his book where the two sides surrounding this debate get expanded. 

5. “No Rules Rules” by Reed Hastings and Erin Meyer

Netflix was one of the most successful and popular streaming sites before 2020. Due to the pandemic, it only has gained popularity and is creating a business model that should be followed. In this New York Times bestselling book, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings gives insight on his unorthodox workplace culture. Clearly, it’s working for them!
