News & Opinion: MBA recommendations

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:46 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Brandon Mendelson has been asking a bunch of experts and professionals, what the top 5 MBA books are and posting them at his blog. There's a lot of titles in the results (approximately 80!), which goes to show that many people have different opinions about what the best books are. There's some expected choices in these recommendations - like Good to Great, The Tipping Point, Made to Stick, and others, but there are also some surprises like How to Read a Book, The Classic Guide to Better Writing, and The Road Less Traveled, 25th Anniversary Edition : A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth, which only goes to show that business isn't always just about business. Whether or not these choices surprise you, head over to our My Favorite Biz Book site and talk about which books are your favorites.
