  1. How to Pack: Travel Smart for Any Trip by Hitha Palepu

Palepu is a former consultant who logged more than half a million miles during the height of her business career. In How to Pack, she shares her hard-earned expertise. This business travel book breaks the packing process down into a 7-day plan, with each step explicitly illustrated.

 

  1. The Millennial's Guide to Business Travel: Lessons for the Next Generation of Road Warriors by Michael L. Puldy

Michael Puldy isn’t a millennial, but he is a technology executive whose travels have brought him to over 40 countries. He tailors his advice for the under-30 business traveler in The Millennial's Guide to Business Travel. Millennials may not have the experience - or the financial backing - of their Gen X and Baby Boomer peers, so the advice is apt.

  1. Business Travel Success: How to Reduce Stress, Be More Productive and Travel with Confidence by Carol Margolis

Jack Canfield, co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, calls  Business Travel Success “the bible for business travelers.” We can’t help but agree, given that Margolis is a consultant with 30 years of business travel experience under her belt.

 

  1. Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World by Michael Lewis

Michael Lewis is the best-selling author whose books The Blind Side, Moneyball, and The Big Short have all been made into major motion pictures. Boomerang combines his knowledge of the world of finance with his business travel experience. He tells the stories of the European countries hardest hit by the Great Recession of 2008: Greece, Ireland, and Iceland. We had to include this with our business travel books because everything Lewis writes is both smart and readable.

 

  1. Lost Chicago by John Paulett and Judy Floodstrand

We had to end things on a local note. Lost Chicago is a different kind of travel book, one that chooses its locations for the precise reason that they can’t be reached on foot or by limousine anymore. Something about the character of Chicago won’t let folks let go of our past. The authors understand this, focusing not only on the lost splendor of Chicago’s grand architectural projects but also everyday things like familiar signs and even outdated modes of transportation, like the 3-wheeled police vehicles that Chicagoans of a certain age still remember.

If you need a mode of transportation around Chicago that’s anything but outdated, call for our luxury Chicago limousine services. We’re happy to help with all your business or leisure travel transportation needs.
