NEW YORK (TheStreet) - How about starting the new year off by reading something that can give you a fresh perspective on investing, how to become a great leader within your organization, or finding the secret to successful time management?
First on the must-read list this week is Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully, which comes out in paperback on Dec. 30 -- a solid addition to any novice or experienced investor's reading list. Also of interest is the story behind Walter Energy (WLT) and how its founder started the company by borrowing $500 to buy an empty house in Building a Business: The Jim Walter Story.
The titles were chosen by TheStreet staff from among all the business books coming out this week listed by Barnes & Noble and Amazon. They are both new hardcovers and the first issue of paperback titles. TheStreet has selected the releases with the widest appeal.
