Format: Paperback
I like his writing in the FT and this book echoes his trademark wit, a sadly lacking talent in many books of this sort. A good "if you read one book, make it this one" overview on many of the big names in business thinking. Quick way to catch up on this, and sound ever so rather knowledgeable at your next board meeting/dinner party/interview. In short good value and rather good fun.

Whilst this is a very easy book to read, thanks to the author's excellent writing that balances the facts with a wry humour, there is something far more satisfying about it too. I suspect that this is a by-product of two things: firstly, for anyone involved in business, the 28 people (with perhaps one exception) have left their mark on the business landscape we inhabit today: as with any history lesson, understanding the past helps explain an awful lot of what takes place today. Secondly, Rhymer Rigby enhances his analysis by judging the 'business thinkers', many of whom defined an era, in the broader context of how the world views them now. The result is a salutary lesson in how, despite its mask of considered seriousness, the world of business is as susceptible to fads, whimsy and short-sightedness as any individual you might care to name. Read it, you'll be glad you did.

i bought this for my husband's birthday and read it cover to cover in the couple days before i wrapped it. unlike a lot of business books you could read this for enjoyment (and i'm more into fashion than business) its actually funny and brings a lot of the most powerful entrepreneurs to life. enough information to make informed conversation, without the myopic detail of full on biographies. great.
