    10 Fall Books to Enhance Professional Development

    With revelations about Silicon Valley pioneers, data-driven leadership, workplace engagement and more, this fall books list has something for every professional.

Are you aware that there's a form of open source that has nothing to do with software coding? Do you know why many organizations fail in attempting to build engagement? Are you curious about the bad habits that companies need to break? If these topics pique your interest, you'll probably want to check out the following list of insightful tech and business-themed books for fall. Some titles focus on self-improvement, including one that promises to help you shake off that "been there … done that" sense of inertia and recharge your "inspiration gene." Others examine the current state of organizational strategy, operations and culture—taking critical views of "business as usual" thinking and encouraging a "shift ahead" mentality to keep pace with business and technology trends in order to outpace the competition. There also are new titles that reveal fresh, compelling insights about the "big four" lineup of tech companies—Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google—as well as seven Silicon Valley pioneers you may want to learn more about. (As always, the publication dates listed are subject to change.)
