Summary
"This is an essential business resource that utilizes an effective and time-efficient approach to mastering the best ideas of modern business and staying up-to-date on topics most widely discussed by upper management. The first ten chapters of the book give in-depth examination of critical topics in business. That is followed by quick summaries of the most talked-about and thought-provoking work from the best business books published, including Freakonomics, Nudge, and Built to Last. The Greatest Hitsbooks are just that: They help you stay on top of the ever-changing mountain of new business theory and practice models in a format that distills an enormous amount of information and insight into memorable digests that will enable you to finally cross these must-read books off your business reading list."--P.
