Reading Recommendations

I am very much an advocate of learning, no matter what the age and no matter where you are in your career. Of course, we all have limited time and the question then becomes -- what should we be reading?

Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten have recently put "The 100 Best" book where they highlight what they feel are the best 100 books to read whether you are a CEO or just entering the business arena. What I like about their book is the classification of books by subject area. For example, here are the books that they feel are notable under the topical area of entrepreneurship:

The Art of the Start by Guy Kawasaki
The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber
The Republic of Tea ** by Mel Ziegler, Patricia Ziegler, and Bill Rosenzweig
The Partnership Charter by David Gage
Growing a Business by Paul Hawken
Guerrilla Marketing by Jay Conrad Levinson
The Monk and the Riddle Randy Komisar with Kent Lineback

Happy reading!
