Every year everybody does a 'best of' list. I/we are no different. The 800CEOREAD best of 2004 compiled by sales will be published in January after the December sales are compiled.
These are my personal favorites, right now. Things change and if you asked me next week, I may have a different answer.
My favorite business book is Unstuck by Keith Yamashita, Sandra Spataro, Portfolio publisheras I said in my review:
"Some people have had issues with business books not being prescriptive enough. This is the perfect book for them. I have a feeling this will be a book that will be around a long time because it deals with a universal problem, being stuck, brilliantly!"
My favorite fiction book for 2004 is Boyos by Richard Marinick, Justin, Charles, & Co. Pub.
"This is a gritty mystery from Boston written by a guy with a huge future. Imagine Clockers by Richard Price meets Robert B. Parker."
My favorite non-fiction book is Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow, Penguin PressThe most consistantly excellent publisher publishing right now in my ever so humble opinion.
Now the hard onemy favorite tunes of 2004.
I have picked three. They are
The Clashs 25th Anniversary Edition of London Calling,
Brian Wilsons finally finished and released classic Smile,
now for something a little more contemporary,
I like Green Day's American Idiot.
Thats it for now. This is a dynamic list so I will add to it.
