My Ten Favorite Business Books

Last week I spoke at the Owen Business School at Vanderbilt University. One of the graduate students asked me for a list of my favorite business books. I thought I’d share my list here.

These are in no particular order. I may think of others, but these are the ones that come to mind first.

I intentionally did not list any Thomas Nelson authors. I wanted to avoid the politics involved when one author is listed and others are not. I will say though that I devour anything by John C. Maxwell. He is a dear friend and has had a huge influence on my own leadership style.

Question: What are you favorite business books?
