The Alliance: The Must-Read Book of the Summer That Could Change the Way We Work

Summertime reading recommendations are usually about escapism -- mysteries, thrillers, melodramas, romances -- meant to stand in for vacations from our everyday lives. But I'd like to add a different sort of book to your summer reading queue. While it's not escapism, it is about a departure from our everyday work lives. I'm talking about The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age by Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh, which just came out today. The Alliance shows how the workplace has changed in recent decades, and how these changes have broken down the trust in the relationship between employers and employees, to everyone's detriment. And then it shows a way forward so that all benefit.
