    Sometimes it seems like dozens of new business advice books are published every month.

    And to what end? Aren't most of them just about the same? So many repetitions of the same tired advice. It can feel like there isn't much left to learn.

    But that's actually an illusion created by conventional wisdom. It's human nature to like things that you agree with and that confirm what you already believed about the world (enter confirmation bias). But that's not really the way to grow, and it's not what you came to Page19 for.

    2016 is still young, meaning it's a great time to shake up stale thinking. We've combed the Blinkist library business books that don't just repeat the same rote advice you've heard a million times before. Ready for some fresh perspectives? Read on.
