I was reading from my list of Blogs tonight and I ran across this clip from 800CEORead. I have or have read three of the five books below. It got me to thinking about what everyone might be reading. Anyone care to share?
Five Best from Ken Roman, Former Advertising Executive
Saturday's Wall Street Journal had a list of the five blue-chip business management books. The list was compiled by Ken Roman, a former advertising executive. I think it is one of the best lists I have seen.
1> The Effective Executive by Peter Drucker
2> Management and Machiavelli (out of print) by Antony Jay
3> What They Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School By Mark McCormick
4> Confessions of an Advertising Man by David Ogilvy
5> Who Says Elephants Can't Dance? by Lou Gerstner
800CEORead calls it "a brilliant list."
On my reading table is Execution: the discipline of getting things done by Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan. Our college president loaned me his copy. I have just read chapters 1 & 2. I already know this is one I will read again.
