Publisher's Summary

28 Business Thinkers Who Changed the World is a guide to the people who have fundamentally reshaped their industries and the way we do business today. Some of these game changers are great intellectuals while others are 'gut instinct' types; some are motivated by desire to change the world, while others are driven by money and power. Rhymer Rigby profiles the top business brains of our time to reveal the humans behind the headlines and how they changed the global business landscape. From Oprah to Mark Zuckerberg, Peter Drucker to Steve Jobs, find out how they made it, the risks they took and the legacies they leave behind.

great business thinkers organized poorly

Is there anything you would change about this book?

the chapters!!!! It is 28 stories but whoever organized the book made two poor decisions- one, they insisted on reading the bibliography for each of the 28 stories aloud- this is not a good thing to listen to for anyone! But they then insisted on breaking the 28 stories into 14 chapters. This means that if you are like me and hear the mind-numbing recitation of publication dates and websites for 20 references, you will advance to the next chapter- and only get 14 stories! If you then have to plow to the end of each of the 14 stories and try to fineses the access to the next story- you waste a lot of time and hassle.<br/><br/>Bad organization!!!! Please either dump the citations or turn it into 28 chapters!

What did you like best about this story?

reinforce my business mind

i did like this fast , chapters after chapters book, with each chapter allocated to a business person, it is uplifting, and what i did like as well , it the way each chapter finish with a little negative view of the person review and some further review.
I also do recommend it, it is a more light hearted business book, one i like for a change from the depth thinking one i read most of the time.

superficial

a disappointing book, no real clear thoughts or message form the author. Just a top line summary of admittedly 28 very interesting people. Having read biographies on a few already felt it was not money well spent
