8 Book and Movie Recommendations from the CEO of LinkedIn


Last week, DonorsChoose.org board member Jeff Weiner spoke to our staff about LinkedIn, scaling, compassion, and the future of work. As you can imagine, our staff – all avid LinkedIn users – were on the edge of our seats.

In addition to sharing some of the most valuable insights I’ve ever heard about setting a life vision and becoming an expert at your craft, Jeff shared a few of his top movie and book recommendations:Movies

  • Shawshank Redemption
  • Godfather II
  • Jiro Dreams of Sushi
  • A Class Divided


  • Conscious Business by Fred Kofman
  • The Art of Happiness by Dalai Lama and Howard Cutler
  • Being Digital by Nicholas Negroponte
  • Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder

We are so grateful for Jeff’s leadership and generosity, and his willingness to carve out an hour to speak to us. We’re also glad to have a few more great books and movies to add to our viewing list.Any other books or movies you’d add to this list?
