Making a list? Checking it twice? Holiday gifts can be a challenge, but we here at Impact Radius think e-commerce is the way to go. In fact, we’re here to make it even easier with a list of books that make great gifts for the 2015 holiday season!

Getting Things Done by David Allen

Pick by: Roger Kjensrud, Chief Technology Officer

It’s on theme with completing your holiday shopping, but that’s not why I’m recommending it. This book describes a simple and very powerful process to bring order to chaos. It is an easy read and the workflow process is something you can apply at work and home.

The Son: A novel by Jo Nesbo

Pick by: Per Pettersen, CEO

Want a great read? Pick any title by Norwegian crime author Jo Nesboe.

I also recommend Guns, Germs, and Steel as a gift for anyone on your list. I like books that turn upside down some of your assumptions as to why things are the way they are or make you see things in a new light.

Why Not Me? By Mindy Kaling

Pick by: Vern Rodriguez, Director of Media

Much like her first book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me, Mindy Kaling’s Why Not Me? is a smart & hilarious read.  Like Tina Fey’s Bossypants, the book is more of a collection of personal essays and has more focus on her current life/career than IEHOWM.  This is a great gift for someone that doesn’t mind looking like a crazy person because they’re laughing out loud while reading.

The Food Lab by Kenji Lopez-Alt

Pick by: Adrienne Cohen, Director of Marketing

My go-to gift this year is The Food Lab by Kenji Lopez-Alt. I’ve had the pleasure of eating Kenji’s food and prepared several of his recipes from He really knows his way around the kitchen, but the MIT-grad also knows how to explain the science of cooking. This book was just released and is already on the NYT and Amazon best-seller lists.
