Trending: Salesforce’s $15.7B Tableau deal is a defining moment for the West Coast tech ‘megalopolis’

jeff-bezos-0002Jeff Bezos isn’t the first guy you’d expect to host a book club. But that’s exactly what he did this summer while working with Amazon’s Lab126 hardware-focused unit in Silicon Valley.

Bezos told CNBC that he held three all-day book clubs with some of Amazon’s top executives as a way to help spur discussion for Amazon’s future.

Here are the books he picked:

1. The Effective Executive by Peter Drucker — “The definite guide to getting the right things done”

2. The Innovator’s Solution by Clayton Christensen — “Creating and sustaining successful growth”

3. The Goal by Eliyahu Goldratt — “The best-selling business novel that introduced the Theory of Constraints and changed how America does business”
