Top Books for L&D Practitioners

Explore the Most Influential Books for Learning and Development

In August 2021, The Learning Guild reached out to the community to find out which work-related books were the most impactful among experienced learning practitioners. We asked questions like: What have you found useful in executing your work? Which books do you still reference? Are there any books that you found more influential that you feel contributed to your professional growth?

In The Book Report: Crowdsourced Favorites from L&D Practitioners, Jane Bozarth has combed through responses to these questions to identify which books were the most helpful, influential, and quotable among L&D practitioners. Respondents also provided the reasons behind why these books were so impactful for them. For those who are newer to the field, this report also includes suggestions that cover the basics surrounding specific L&D topics like instructional design.
