News & Opinion: Fortune 75: Best Books

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:50 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

In the introduction to The Smartest Books We Know, Jerry Useem says:
FORTUNE offers the ultimate reading list: 75 books that teach you everything you really need to know about business.

I am not sure about this list. You can judge for yourself, but it seems like Fortune wanted to purposely create a different list than people are used to seeing. I think they accomplished that, but I am not sure I like the result. We are working on getting Jerry to come by and talk about how they came up with the list.

I have published in the complete list in the extended entry (if you are in RSS, click through to the entry). You can click on the category headings to see the write-ups from Fortune.
