At Momentum Public Affairs, we read a lot of business books. Not just strictly how to grow your business, but everything from leadership to communication to digital marketing to starting side hustles. While every book we read offers some implementable guidance or advice, we’ve selected our favorites to share with you, and hope that you’ll get as much out of them as we have.

We’re not going to bother having a star/rating system because we’re only going to list and review books that we feel have significantly helped move our business forward. Instead, we’ll do a rating base on the number of times we read the book – which should tell you how strongly we feel about the books.

Links to the book listings on are included.
