Great new book out of Wharton: "Phil Rosenzweig rips into some of the most popular business books of recent years, including the bestsellers In Search of Excellence and Good to Great. Along the way, he argues that many of the pat principles bandied about in the business world are based on misguided thinking and flimsy research."
In my final strategy class last year, I asked our professor for any book or magazine suggestions. He thought for a minute and could only offer the Harvard Business Review. At first, I was shocked, having been a long-time reader of popular business books. However, after two years at business school, I have become far more critical of mainstream business books and their methodologies. The only two books I know consistently recommend are The Innovator's Dilemma and The Tipping Point. Any others I'm missing? Let me know in the comments.
