Publisher's Summary

Thousands of business books are published every year. Here are the best of the best. After years of reading, evaluating, and selling business books, Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten are among the most respected experts on the category. Now they have chosen and reviewed the 100 best business titles of all time, the ones that deliver the biggest payoff for today's busy readers and listeners.

The 100 Best Business Books of All Time puts each book in context, so that listeners can quickly find solutions to the problems they face, such as how best to spend The First 90 Days in a new job or how to take their company from Good to Great. Many of the choices are surprising - you'll find reviews of Moneyball and Orbiting the Giant Hairball, but not Jack Welch's memoir.

At the end of each review, Jack and Todd direct listeners to other books, both inside and outside "The 100 Best". And sprinkled throughout are "sidebars" suggesting movies, novels, and even children's books that offer equally relevant business insights. This guide will appeal to anyone, from entry-level to CEO, who wants to cut through the clutter and discover the brilliant books that are truly worth and investment of time and money.

Good book list; poor recording

This book is read by the two authors. They are not professional oral readers and frequently stumble over their words or make mistakes. The recording was apparently not edited because the authors repeat sentences when they have made a mistake (thinking the first sentence audio would be removed). In the final few chapters, the authors are actually talking about the recording itself (perhaps thinking the microphone is turned off) and one of the chapters is cut off. The list is a good sample of popular business books, but each very brief synopsis often contains more of Covert and Satterson's impressions of the book rather than the content of the book itself. The first 50 books have 3 or 4 minute outlines, while the last 10 or 20 books have outlines in the 1 to 3 minute range which makes them limited in usefulness.
