The 100 Best Business Books of All Time

Mark Howell —  December 11, 2008


One of the blogs I check out on a regular basis is 800-CEO-READ.  Great place to discover this year's most important business titles as well as a frequent look ahead at what's due out.  Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten have collaborated on an interesting new project:  The 100 Best Business Books of All Time: What They Say, Why They Matter, and How They Can Help You

When a review copy arrived this week, I had to have a look at what books made the list and instead found a really interesting take on the project.  Although others have undertaken this kind of thing in the past, this is the first time I've seen one that actually links the concepts within the book.  For example, at the end of the review of Peter Drucker's The Effective Executive there is a reference to David Allen's Getting Things Done and Marcus Buckingham's Now, Discover Your Strengths. That is cool.

    Thanks for this advice. I personally started a crazy project : read 52 of the best businesses books in 52 weeks in an attemp to pass the Personal MBA (a MBA for less than 1 500$) in one year ( see my blog )
    The Personal MBA is a comprehensive list of 77 books (93 with the supplements) in 12 categories that is intended to deliver the 20% of the knowledge given in an MBA that give 80% of the results.
    When I will finish it, I will just have to buy this book and then read the books that are not in the PMBA :)
