The revised and expanded edition published in 2011 differs from the "2003 edition" as follows:
- the "100 most influential management books" in the "2003 edition" are included in this "2011 edition"
except "The Function of the Executive" by Chester Barnard published in 1938/1968. The majority of
these books qualifies for a "Top 100 List" and is a very good benchmark for implementing an excellent
"Best Business Books" library (5-stars). Such a library has many advantages: access to outstanding know how
and best management practices, stimulation of creativity, learning from failure and success, development of
in-house capabilities etc. etc.
- The new "2011 edition" has been extended by 33 books. Six of them are very good recommendations:
Barbarians at the Gate by Burrough and Helyar (1989 - 20th anniversary edition).
Direct from Dell by Michael Dell (1999)
Digital Capital by Don Tapscott (2000)
Straight from the Gut by Jack Welch (2003)
Now discover your strengths by Buckingham/Clifton (2004)
The World is flat by Thomas Friedman (2005)
- The remaining 27 books in this new edition - not included in the 2003 edition - I would neither buy nor read: most of them are outdated (dealing with the
so called new economy published between 1999 and 2001 just before the .com bubble burst), some have significantly negative or almost no customer review
comments, a few have been written by non-experts in the subject matter they deal with. (1-star for the research performance which contributed to the 2011 edition).
In addition to the "Top 100 in the 2003 edition" and the six books mentioned above I recommend to consider the following books:
Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl (first published 1946, regular reprints, revised and updated 2006 - 500 5- and 4-star reviews)
Maslow on Management by Abraham Maslow (1961 reprinted 1998)
The 80/20 Principle by Richard Koch (1997)
Only the Paranoid survive by Andy Grove (1999)
Six Thinking Hats by Edward de Bono (1999)
The Leadership Pipeline by Charan/Drotter/Noel (2001)
Who says Elephants can't dance by Louis V. Gerstner Jr. who saved IBM (2002)
The Profit Zone by Adrian Slywotzky (2002)
How to grow when Markets don't grow by Adrian Slywotzky (2004)
Why smart executives fail by Sydney Finkelstein (2004)
Blue Ocean Strategy by Chan Kim/Mauborgne (2005)
Strategy: A step by step approach by Mark Daniell (2005)
True North: Discover your Authentic Leadership by George/Sims (2007)
Growing Pains by Flamholtz7rANDLE (2007 4th edition)
The Halo Effect by Phil Rosenzweig (2007)
Innovation to the core by Skarzyns/Gibson (2008)
The Evolution of Management Thought by Daniel Wren (2008 6th edition)
One Page Talent Management by by Effron/Ort (2010)
Der Markt hat nicht immer Recht by Wilfried Stadler - The Market is not always right (2011 - no English translation so far)
Steve Jobs (2011) added 20120209
I think the key criterion for "best" in this case is most influential, which helps me make more sense of what is included and some of what isn't.
The book is useful in that each chapter (one for each of the 100 books) follows the same template, sharing a brief summary, the key ideas the book highlighted and a bit of context - how the book fits into the world and the impact it has had.
If you are looking to become more conversant in some classic business literature and ideas, or if you are looking for a guide to help you fill the gaps in your own library, this book would be a good choice.
It might not be a book to sit down with at the fire, but it is worth considering and taking a look at.
