WE LIKE THESE EXAMPLES:
Switch by Chip Heath & Dan Heath
The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande
What I like:
Attention-grabbing designs that grab you as you walk past the bookshelf
Pop out from other books on the shelf
Both have graphics that depict the name (i.e. Switch has a light switch and The Checklist Manifesto has a Checkmark)
Simple yet powerful
Strong and bold
Keywords integrated into the book design - I love this - and want/need it - job search, interview advice, resume writing, salary negotiation, job search myths debunked. All great keywords and love the idea of integrating them into the back cover or even a subtitle area or design possiblity of the front cover.
