Top 15 Business Books Recommended by Today’s Top Entrepreneurs

Link to: Top 15 Business Books Recommended by Today’s Top Entrepreneurs
As promised in my last post on must-read business books, our team recently went through over 350 episodes to pull out the best of the best for you. Here’s how it all went down:
  • We started by figuring out which titles have been recommended more than once.
  • Then, we made a “short list” of those titles. Who can keep track of 350 books, anyway?
  • This brought us to a list of exactly 50 books – all of which have been recommendation more than one time.
  • Of those 50, 27 of them were only recommended twice. We didn’t want to just give you a list of 50 books – that’s still a whole lot of books!
  • So we sat at 23: still a little long…
  • Finally, we eliminated all that have been recommended just three times, which resulted in scratching eight more titles.
