The Start-up of You: Adapt to the Future, Invest in Yourself, and Transform Your Career, by Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn) and entrepreneur Ben Casnocha
"How are you first, only, faster, better or cheaper than other people who want to do what you're doing in the world? What are you offering that's hard to come by?"

Are you in need of direction or inspiration? Don't worry. It's perfectly natural for professionals to occasionally feel that they need to recharge their "internal drive" engines, as well as tune up their "career GPS." Both instincts often motivate us to buy best-sellers from business leaders in order to find out the latest information and insights about effective decision making, collaborating, innovating, managing and a host of other skills. When we read a passage that really stands out, of course, we often highlight it. With that in mind, a site called Quartz has presented the following business and management quotes and passages from a list of the most "Recently Heavily Highlighted Passages" from Amazon.com, as designated by users of the online e-tailer's Kindle e-reader software. Some of the authors' names will sound familiar to you: They include self-help icons Stephen Covey and Brian Tracy. Others represent a new breed of original thinkers. The passages were compiled by Kevin Delaney, co-founder of Quartz.
