News & Opinion: 100 Best Makes ALA Top 10 List

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 3:35 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Each year, the American Library Association compiles a list of business books that libraries around the country use for guidance on quality books to include in their stock. This year, they've included 8cr's Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten's The 100 Best Business Books of All Time in their list of ten recommended business books for libraries to carry.
Also included in the list are Michael Lewis', Panic: The Story of Modern Financial Insanity, Julia Angwin's, Stealing MySpace: The Battle to Control the Most Popular Website in America, and others, including something I'm personally interested in seeking out, Greg Grandin's, Fordlandia: The Rise and Fall of Henry Ford's Forgotten Jungle City.
It's an honor for us to see this book, that compiled the best business books, find it's place in another such list, among fine company, and hopefully with the ability to reach an even wider range of people that can discover some of the greatest business thoughts ever put to paper.
