strategy + business's "best of" list is always a special treat—in large part because it's never just a list, but a series of essays. The magazine gathers together a different team of experts each year, and each takes the task of writing on their chosen category and the books in it. I've listed their picks below, linking to the essays at the head of each category. On the Economy, The Fog of Panic by David Warsh On Leadership, Highlights in a Low Year by Walter Kiechel III On Innovation, Innovation as a Social Act by Krisztina “Z” Holly On China, Probing China’s Infrastructure by Sheridan Prasso On Human Capital, Talent Redefined by Sally Helgesen On the Human Mind, You Are What You Think by Judith E. Glaser On Management, The Chorus Takes a Bow by David K. Hurst On Biography & History, True Tales of Fortune by James O’Toole The covers below represent s + b's Top Shelf—the best books of each category.

As Theodore Kinni writes in his introduction to the essays:

Two years after the financial collapse, the idea of hunkering down and waiting for a return to business as usual—as people did in previous recessions—seems a less and less viable strategy. But what should you do instead?

In this edition of our annual review of the year’s best business books, you will find a reading list that offers intriguing and compelling answers to this question.

We've been following this list since 2003, and you can peruse past year's lists with the links below.
