I was immensely impressed by the original ideas I hadn't seen elsewhere in the following books at the library. After my skim reading I'm gonna go back to borrow them and recommend them to ya'll. The marketing books are exceptions - the titles just look compelling, didn't flick through them. Hope I get time to get round to finding them again.

why it sells by 'danesh', critical marketing,

quantiative methods in marketing,

data driven business models,

aesthetics in marketing,

controversy in marketing theory.

Too lazy to get the links for the rest. They are: psychology of marketing, values in organizations emerging perspectives


against utility based economics, first principles in economics, rationality in economics, why economics is not yet a science, the economics anti-textbook and the philosophy of the australian liberal party.

Wlll these be a waste of time? I doubt they're all the best in their niches or that those niches are important.
