Previous Year Mark Zuckerberg made a commitment to read one book every two weeks. "Books allow you to fully explore a topic and immerse yourself in a deeper way than most media today," he wrote on his personal Facebook page.

I decided to put a list of his books on business that he highlighted and recommended to read for every aspiring or even already well-established entrepreneur.

But power is not merely dispersing; it is also decaying. Those in power today are more constrained in what they can do with it and more at risk of losing it than ever before.
