"Why Should the Boss Listen to You" sounds like a most promising read. Especially for those of us who aren't exactly on the boss level yet. It's about being able to exercise your influence effectively and being able to gain trust. I think readers might be able to pick up more lessons here that isn't only limited to bosses but co-workers as well. I'm not exactly familiar with the author but I'm hoping the writing style isn't too stuffy but rather, something that can be appreciated by ordinary employees.

These look like really good suggestions. I suggest you add Launching a Leadership Revolution by Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward.

I like to get books as soon as they come out.
