In this step, we have collated an extensive list of readings for this week’s topic.
At the beginning of the list, you will find links to online sources, such as YouTube videos and online articles. Where the link refers to an academic paper, you will probably only get a link to the abstract, although in some cases you may be able to find a publicly available version to which we cannot provide a direct link (here I am talking about piracy; ‘open access’ versions are sometimes provided by the authors, on pages such as ResearchGate, and publishers sometimes offer temporary open access, for instance, Harvard Business Review allows you to read 3 papers/month). At the end of the list are some of the best books I have seen on the topic.
I would like to request people who come across any interesting links or books relevant to this week’s topic, to provide these here.
