Business Books for People Who Don’t Read “Great Books”

LivingRoomFireplaceAs you select holiday gifts for family member and friends, you may be in need of some suggestions of business books for non-readers.

They can read, of course, but have little (if any) time or inclination for “great books” such as Moby Dick and War and Peace, preferring newspapers and magazines for recreational reading.

I recommend for your consideration these highly-readable works, most of which are business fables:

Maestro: A Surprising Story About Leading by Listening (128 pages)
Roger Nierenberg

Silos, Politics and Turf Wars: A Leadership Fable About Destroying the Barriers That Turn Colleagues Into Competitors (224 pages)
Patrick Lencioni

Chess Not Checkers: Elevate Your Leadership Game (144 pages)
Mark Miller

Our Iceberg Is Melting: Changing and Succeeding under Any Conditions (160 pages)
John Kotter with Holger Rathgeber

Arguably the best of the business fables is Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox’s The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement (368 pages)
