News & Opinion: Just Jack! at The Business Beat

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 1:37 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Our company founder, Jack Covert, talked with Penguin's The Business Beat about the book The Smartest Guys in the Room by Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind.
Jack had questioned whether or not to include the book in his 100 Best Business Books of All Time, co-authored with Todd Sattersten. However, after spending more time with the book, he realized how well the book was written, portraying the importance of vision and looking at the big picture. The themes in the book, though somewhat historical, are repeatable, and can be learned from again and again, especially through the narrative style of the writing.
