We’ve given over the d.school to host a book-launch party on Wednesday, February 4 at 7PM for a book that features some of our terrific d.school residents, friends and neighbors. It’s called The 100 Best Business Books of All Time, by Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten. Come on by if you have time. The Stanford Bookstore will be selling books, and refreshments will be provided.
d.school Professor Bob Sutton explains “The guys who wrote this book picked several books by people with close connections to the d.school, including Dan and Chip Heath’s Made to Stick (Chip is frequent guest at the d.school), Tom Kelley’s Art of Innovation, Randy Komisar’s Monk and the Riddle (Randy teaches entrepreneurship at Stanford and happens to be married to Debra Dunn, who teaches many classes at the d.school), and The Knowing Doing-Gap, which Jeff Pfeffer and I wrote.”
The publisher’s blurb is below….
A great business book can change your life.
When 11,000 business books are published each year, it’s not easy to find the ones worth your time and money. Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten of 800-CEO-READ have taken on the ultimate challenge, rereading the classics, bestsellers, and sleepers to choose the 100 best business books. The 100 Best Business Books of All Time features classics like Good to Great and The Essential Drucker and some surprises like Oh, The Places You’ll Go and Moneyball.
