Top business books to read this summer

Here is a short compilation of top business books taken from the New York Times best seller list (if you purchase off these links, my Amazon account gets credited a minute sum).  Hopefully, this is useful.  Some, if not all, of these titles should be on your nightstand.

*************
The Blind Side (Movie Tie-in Edition) (Movie Tie-in Editions): As always, Lewis is a great story teller in the world of business and sports (think previous hit, Moneyball — a great read) and this tale of rags to fame was supported by a recent movie with the same title.  My kids even enjoyed it.

Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work: Like this one a lot.  As a fan of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, this book eschews the cubicle life for something more valuable, real — and it’s found by using one’s hands and body.

The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook: A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal: As a Harvard grad myself, I always find these sordid tales of great minds acting like lunatics while pursuing their fortunes.  Facebook, the company and its founders, are totally complicit.  Mezrich is a great writer (The movie, 21, was a takeoff of his Bringing Down the House)

Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard: Heath Brothers (of Made to Stick fame) are at it again with a gameplan to help readers face hard changes in life and make them a little bit easier.
