A short while ago, I wrote a defense of business books here on the 800-CEO-READ blog, contending that the business book genre includes such a wide range of subgenres that it doesn't deserve the disdain or dismissal it often receives as being pedantic or unappealing to a wider audience. Today, Todd Sattersten contributes a precise retort against the criticism the genre receives by quoting some of the most recent critics and showing the shortcomings of their arguments against the value of business books.
There is no right or wrong answer in the argument of whether most business books offer value to readers.
