News & Opinion: 100 Posts about The 100 Best
Jack and I have this book coming out. You might have heard about it :)
The 100 Best Business Books of All Time hits shelves February 5th, a mere 29 days from now (not that anyone is counting).
We have a lot of things planned as we run up to the launch.
- We hope you are taking advantage of the free books we are giving away on inBubbleWrap. This week, we are giving away 100 Best selection Getting Things Done by David Allen along with his new book, Making It All Work.
- We are doing some speaking around the country. If you are in the Bay Area, you can see Jack and I at The Commonwealth Club on February 3rd.
- Finally, Jack and I are going to be writing about the book here at the 800-CEO-READ Blog. We are going to shoot for 100 posts about The 100 Best for the next several weeks. That will give us the opportunity to stories, outtakes, and extras that we couldn't (or wouldn't) put in the book. Jack started yesterday with his quick post on Execution. Tomorrow, I am going to share one of the more painful outtakes that we couldn't put in the book (it still make me sad).
So, we hope you don't mind too much the focus over the coming weeks. This blog has always been business books and nothing is going to change there. We are just going to spend a little more time highlighting the classics and why we think they are worthy of your time.
