Recommended IC reads on World Book Day


Recommended IC reads on World Book Day

My Facebook newsfeed has been full of children dressed up as weird and wonderful characters today in celebration of World Book Day.

All Things IC booksI sent my daughter to nursery today clutching a bag of gingerbread and wearing a party frock in an attempt to be Gretel from Hansel and Gretel (note to self – always have a stash of dressing up clothes handy for when short-notice occasions crop up!).

I am asked constantly to recommend books to do with internal communication, social media, change and PR.

Since 2009 I have published reading lists via Amazon and linked to them on my Rachel’s Resources page.

However, today, I thought I’d share the cream of the crop from all of those lists and categorise them by topic.

I’ve also had the privilege of contributing chapters to and being interviewed for a number of books. You can see the ones I’ve contributed to via my books page.

So, in recognition of World Book Day, here are my recommended reads (in no particular order) of books that I have read and enjoyed over the years.

I refer to many of them a lot, and am always on the lookout for new ones to read. What’s missing? What should I be aware of? You can Tweet me @AllthingsIC or comment below.

I have created a Twitter list of all the people I’ve referenced below who are on Twitter.

You can choose to follow them all here.

See the books tag to discover reviews, views and thoughts on books via articles that I’ve published over the years.

Internal communication, change and culture

I’ve spotted online that there is an updated version of the Mounter book I’ve linked to above, it’s due out in August this year and is written by Pamela, Liam Fitzpatrick and Klavs Valskov. Knowing them all well, I’m sure it will be a corker: Internal Communications: A Manual for Practitioners (PR In Practice).

 Social media

Books that make you (me) think differently about the world of work

Happy reading!
