News & Opinion: Truth and Fiction in the Business World

Fortune has a blurb on two books in their Business Life section (pg 190, 7/31/2006).

They recommend The Futurist by James Othmer. Dan Pink was telling me about this book at BEA back in May. Othmer is a Young & Rubicam exec and writes about a fictional corporate guru who suddenly realizes everything he has been saying is hogwash.

The second book is The Accidental Investment Banker by Jonathan Knee. The review claims the intrigue and drama of 24 told through the true stories of his ten years at Goldman and Morgan Stanley.
