The 30 Best Business Books of 2021

After researching and reviewing more than 1,000 books last year, Soundview has just completed putting the finishing touches on their annual list of the best business books.

Dec. 13, 2021 / PRZen / CHADDS FORD, Pa. — Every year the team at Soundview ( scours through thousands of business books and selects the titles that we believe have the ideas and concepts that can make a positive impact on the professional development of business people across the country. For each selection, we create a 4- to 8-page summary (plus a 10-minute audio file) that highlights only the most important aspects of each book.

Listed below are the books that we selected in 2021. These books all cover traditional business topics like management, leadership, and teamwork in one way or another. There are also a few that hone-in on more recent workplace trends such as remote work, diversity & inclusion, entrepreneurship, culture, employee engagement, and managing change. For brief overviews of each of these books, visit
