News & Opinion: My Favorite Business Book by You
Earlier this year, we released The 100 Best Business Books of All Time.
In making such a bold statement, we received both congratulatory notes and outright condemnation of our selections. As you can imagine, hard decisions had to be made. There was simply no way around the fact that there were going to be deserving books and authors left out.
We launched My Favorite Business Book in March of 2009 to remedy that numerical constraint and open the selection process to more people than just two booksellers from Milwaukee. The site allows anyone to share the story of their favorite book and make the case for why others should read it.
This document is just a sampling of the stories that readers have shared with us. With enough participation, we believe we can build a resource that will provide a book recommendation for most any problem, a peer-generated bibliography of the best and most useful business resources bound in covers.
The process only takes a few minutes to complete. If you’d like to participate, or simply read more stories, head on over to myfavoritebizbook.com.
