Product description

From the Publisher

USA TODAY, September 1997
THE ULTIMATE BUSINESS SCHOOL. What could have been merely a clever idea has been turned into a really useful book by veteran British management author Stuart Crainer in THE ULTIMATE BUSINESS LIBRARY: 50 Books That Shaped Management Thinking (AMACOM, $24.95). Each of the 50 selections is described in a fluid, informative manner and includes a profile of the authors, such as Peter Drucker, Tom Peters and Michael Porter. A bonus is commentary by noted management author Gary Hamel, who contributes an excellent foreword and a brief introduction to each book, including Competing for the Future, which he co-wrote with C.K. Prahalad in 1994. Crainer includes such timeless titles as Sun Tzu's The Art of War (500 B.C.) and Machiavelli's The Prince, published in 1513 and still in print. As Hamel quips, "What modern volume on leadership will be gracing bookstores in the year 2500?"
