We shared with you yesterday the winner of the FT/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award.

Here is a dump of some of those links that have been building up in my bookmarks: Charles Fishman walks around Wal-Mart with Washington Post reporter Bob Thompson and talks about The Wal-Mart Effect. Andy Kessler reads alot of business books, but doesn't know why because they mostly suck. He does see our view of the new business book as one that shows you a different way of viewing the world.
