jeffbezos304Wish you could be in a book club with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos? CNBC Tech Correspondent Jon Fortt wrote a popular LinkedIn post about his interview with Bezos this week.

The leader shared the three books he had Amazon’s top executives read, a peek into Bezos’ bookshelf:  The Effective Executive by Peter DruckerThe Innovator’s Solution by Clayton Christensen and The Goal by Eliyahu Goldratt. Check it out:

This summer he spent time at Lab126, a Silicon Valley outpost about a mile from Apple headquarters where Amazon engineers hash out hardware designs. And he also hosted three all-day book clubs with Amazon’s top executives, capped by nice dinners at the end. Bezos said he used the books as frameworks for sketching out the future of the company.
