Always anticipated, strategy + business has published their Best Business Books 2008. What makes this list special is that they assign each category to an expert in that field for review, and each reviewer delivers a lengthy and in depth essay on the books chosen. I've linked each category to it's reviewer's essay at the top of each section. The books starred are those selected as the category's best, what is referred to as s+b's top shelf. Strategy: Fast Competition and Flat Denial by Phil Rosenzweig Life Stories: A Masterclass in Leadership by Nell Minow Marketing: The Brand's New World by Catharine P.
