News & Opinion: Top 10 (Bogus) Business Books for 2009

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 3:26 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Here is a little business book humor to send you into the long weekend (for those of us in the States).

Capitalist Banter has a great sendup of business books everyone should check out in 2009. Titles include "The One-Minute Micromanager" and "How to Win Friends While Under the Influence."

My favorite:

The 40-Hour Work Week by "A. Boss"--Full text: "I don't pay you to read books. Get back to work."
