Good to great
This is an interesting book which helps in understanding why it is important to move from good to great. I like the fact of "Fist who, then what" which shows it is important to get the right talents. This contributes more towards the success of any business.

10 Books that might be interesting
Strong disconnect between the premise of books that would help you learn business and the actual books listed. I would have suggested something like: Financial Intelligence: A Manager's Guide to Knowing What the Numbers Really Mean, that really does teach you about business and has many interesting case stories of people who cooked the books.

Another Book for the List
Pulse: Understanding the Vital Signs of Your Business

By Frank Coker

On Amazon.

I use this book in a master's degree program at the University of Washington in a course on entrepreneurship. The book explains to a non-financial audience how financial data can be used to predict future success or failure of a business. This information could save many thousands of companies from going out of business evrey year. The secrete is seeing what's ahead before you get there. Most entrepreneurs just go until they hit a wall then they are forced to stop and make a course correction or simply stop. By steering around the brick walls, the entrepreneur can avoid a lot of pain and can save a huge amount of money fixing things after they break. The book draws from concepts used in predictive analytics and trend analysis, but does so in a very approachable way. If you read the book I would love to get your feedback. My email address is in the book.   Cheers! Frank Coker
