"After years of reading, evaluating, and selling business books, Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten are the most respected experts on the category. Now they have chosen the 100 best business titles of all time - the ones that deliver the biggest payoff for today's busy readers."
The books on the list are divided in different categories.
- Sales and Marketing
- Rules and Scorekeeping
- Innovation & Creativity
- Big ideas
Both lists share a number of books, like The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey, The Effective Executive by Peter Drucker and The Goal by Eli Goldratt (read my review here).
However, some books are exclusively on the 100 Best Business Books list. Some examples are Execution by Larry Bossidy & Ram Charan, The Innovator's Dilemma by Clayton Christensen, Reengineering the Corporation by Michael Hammer and James Champy, Toyota Production System by Taiichi Ohno and To Engineer Is Human by Henry Petroski.
Covert and Sattersen wrote also a book about their list. You won't be surprised by the name of it: The 100 Best Business Books of All Time: What They Say, Why They Matter, and How They Can Help You.
At the time of writing, I've read about one thirth of these books. So there's still a lot work to do. :-) Besides some of the books mentioned above, I liked for instance Good to Great by Jim Collins, The Lexus and the Olive Tree by Thomas Friedman and The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell.
