News & Opinion: Can't Buy Books?

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 9:37 PM – Filed under: Big Ideas & New Perspectives

I realize that linking to this entry might be a little self-serving, but I thought to share it anyway (and I was upfront).
Johanna Rothman at Managing Product Development wrote a post titled Convincing Managers To Buy Books. It start with this:
Some of my suggestions for people in my classes are simply to buy some good books for some specific information. When I suggest this, I sometimes hear "my manager won't let me buy books." As a bibliophile, I can't understand that :-). Even though I do accept that not everyone is like me, you can convince most managers to buy books...

We just want to help any way we can :)
