Nine Leadership Books to Watch for in 2016

In a category crowded with formulaic promises, bad writing and warmed-over common sense, it's hard to know which books on the business book shelf are worth a look. To help you fill those new year's resolutions to lead smarter, work faster and get ahead on the job, we scanned publishers' lists, pored over book catalogs and asked a few top leadership thinkers about the books they're looking forward to reading in 2016.

Below, books from the first half of next year that should help inspire you at work in the year ahead.

(1)The Right Kind of Crazy, By Adam Steltzner with William Patrick, Portfolio, Jan. 12

MacArthur Foundation "Genius Grant" winner Duckworth is known for her research on grit -- the idea that focused persistence, rather than genius alone, is what really leads to great achievement. Duckworth's upcoming book, certainly timed for graduation gift season, shares her research on how perseverance and passion wins out over raw talent. Duckworth -- a former McKinsey consultant turned University of Pennsylvania professor who's also founded a nonprofit for research into character-building in kids -- also shares her own personal story, as well as interviews with successful people to illustrate its ideas.
