News & Opinion: Twelve Books That Changed the World

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 2:32 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Madeleine McGrath wrote a piece last week on the Tom Peters blog about a British TV "programme" that will feature twelve books that changed the world (Wealth of Nations is the only things close to a business book).

She then poses the question as to if there are any business books that belong in the company of Origin of Species and Principia Mathematica. There is a lively discussion going on about that very question.

This correct answer is the final one in the thread, posted by onehandclapping:
