Top 17 Favorite Business Books

What does a geek do on Friday night instead of hitting the bars? Compile a list of his favorite business books for the blog. In order to be successful you should focus on getting smarter and constantly fuel your curiosity for new knowledge. Reject the status quo and refuse to blindly follow the mob mentality just because your "friends" are doing it. Learning doesn't cease after college, to the contrary, that's when your thirst for knowledge should begin to accelerate! You can actually start to apply your learning to real life instead of a cookie-cutter simulated environment. I usually have trouble finishing books and these are no exception but I've highlighted the salient concepts from each and they are definitely worth picking up at the closest Half Price Books or online at Amazon when you get the urge to learn more from thought leaders on topics such as startups, entrepreneurs, marketing and sales. Note: The list is in no particular order.
