Recommended Reading from HOW and CFC

Ilise Benun on your online marketing planIf you’re a creative professional looking for something to read, whether at the beach or on a comfy couch, here’s a list, compiled by Julia Reich of, of books recommended by speakers at this year’s HOW Design Live.

Almost all of the design community luminaries I saw speak at the HOW conferences in Boston a few weeks ago (June 21-24) had books to recommend, in a broad swath of genres. Here’s my compiled list of the books, their authors, and the speakers who recommended them:

Were you at HOW? There were so many presentations to choose from, I’m sure many speakers I did not have a chance to hear also had books to recommend. What’s on your list?

And, if you’ve read any of these books and have an opinion to share, pro or con, I’d love to hear them.
