News & Opinion: Crown Business' Fall Season

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 9:24 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

As we head into the fall, we are going to make you aware of the books coming out from various imprints. We are going to start with Random House's Crown Business imprint. I think Crown is a good example of what pundits like to point to when they say that business book publishing is in bad shape. Crown only has three titles coming out this fall. Their strategy is that they are backing known authors and are betting on blockbuster hits. I am not sure if that is a right or wrong strategy, but it is hard to argue when Execution has sold over 500,000 copies. I am sure we will be talking more about each of these titles as they get closer to release. As I am writing this, Jack tells me he finished reading the galley of Confronting Reality and is going to post about it tomorrow. Update: I type too slow. Jack posted below.
