Книги для развития кругозора и стратегического мышления от @ponchiknews

Этот список я составил для одного из своих коучинговых клиентов. Он спросил меня: «Как можно развивать любознательность и широту кругозора?» — одну из важных характеристик в психологических портретах личности, в том чисиле в тесте Хогана.

Я задумался, а потом понял, что есть целый ряд крутых авторов, которые для меня являются воплощением любознательного, широко подкованного и стратегически мыслящего человека. Ниже список книг, который я бы посоветовал в таких случаях.

Дисклаймер: широкий кругозор и диапазон интересов не значат, что у авторов книг все всегда по науке. Многие из них додумывают, фантазируют и представляют, как оно могло бы быть. Но делают это крайнке интересно и убедительно. Таким образом, они формируют повестку и выступают лидерами мнения.
