News & Opinion: My First Biz Books

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:09 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

I talked about author Alan Axelrod back in May. This week I saw copies of his two new books My First Book of Business Etiquette and My First Book of Business Ethics. They are part of the new Executive Board Book series from Quirk (famous for the Worst Case Scenerio series). My verdict is they are cute. On the inside cover, there is a name block that says "This Executive Board Book belongs to:". They have more words than the board books I am reading to my 16 month old right now, but they contain some of the essentials on the topics. I think they would make great gifts for the business school graduates on your shopping list.
