I like that she pointed me to the list.

In 100 Best - 800 CEO Read Blog
Jack and I have been working on an idea for about two years. We thought it made sense to put our knowledge about business books into a book of our own.
We are going to "ask for the order". What I mean is that you have been a follower of 800-CEO-READ for any period of time, you know what we are about: we sell business books and promote great ideas.
Our book is our best effort yet at helping you find the books solutions to the problems and challenges you face, while presenting opportunities you may not have considered before.
We want each of you to buy a copy of The 100 Best.
You can also order it from us. You'll pay the full retail price of 25.95, but you will get a bag of extras that are only available through 800-CEO-READ:
- You'll received a shiny, hardcover of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time autographed by both Jack and Todd
- We will include a copy of "Conversations about The 100 Best Business Books of All Time". This is an audio CD that Jack and I did, which has 12 tracks, each about 6 minutes in length, where we talk about the books and the key concepts in each of the chapters of The 100 Best.
- You will receive a copy of In The Books 2008, our annual publication whose purpose is to highlight the best of the year in the genre of business books.
- After placing your order, we will email you "the lost chapter" from The 100 Best (it was not really lost, we ran out of room in the book). We have compiled a 39 page chapter of Industry Books that everyone in business should read. This chapter comes in a simple to download pdf document and shares all of the design characteristics of the original book.
If you need to hear from some others, here are a few:
- Eddie Evans from Reuters - "Business Books: They read them so you don't have to."
- Gloria McDonough-Taub from CNBC - "You may disagree with their selections and that's fine, we all have our favorites--BUT--they've made some really smart choices that truly help the reader, the book fans, unlike the Oscars where they always get it wrong."
- Maureen McKay at Reader's Digest - "...a strong, engaging overview of some of the best business books published in recent years."
- Andrea Learned at Learned on Women - "As Jack puts it in one of his reviews: "There are books that break new ground and then there are books that show you a new way to think about the basics." Jack and Todd's book does both (and inspires you to keep on reading...)."
- My Fireside Chat with Lisa Haneberg at Management Craft (26 minute podcast) Matt May at Elegant Solutions - "I appreciate the leg-work and diligence and pure sweat that must have gone into what would to me seems a Herculean task."
You can find the entire list of the 100 books at 100bestbiz.com. You can also download the introduction to The 100 Best and two sample reviews from The Essential Drucker and To Engineer Is Human.
A compelling offer, followed by testimonials, and finished off with free samples of the final product.
This year instead of FRUITCAKE!

If you need a stocking stuffer for your business friend check this out.
Jeffrey Gitomer is a phenomenon. He is the hardest working man in the business of motivation. I have known Jeffrey for well over a decade. In fact, the updated version of The Sales Bible still carries my name on the cover. Weird but true. Jeffrey called and asked if I would give him a plug for the hard cover of the book and I did (and that is why my quote is on the cover).
For the past two years he has been flooding the market with a series of brilliant books on laser focused issues. The Little Red Book of Selling started things, and that book was quickly followed by The Little Red Book of Sales Answers, then The Little Black Book of Connections (read my review here), and now The Little Gold Book of YES! Attitude.
The reason I decided tell you about this library is that I spent some time with the YES book and loved it. So I went back to the other books and found that there is a reason that Jeffrey is the only person, that I know of, who has every had three different books on The Wall Street Journal weekly best seller list during the same week.
Now, what makes his books so special? They are a perfect size. They fit in your hand and feel comfortable. The pages are four color. The takeaways in each book are bite-sized and just perfect to read on an airplanethat is why you have seen these books stacked on the shelves at airport bookstores. Jeffrey's writing is extremely conversational and fun to read. Plus, the books have rounded edges and those cool ribbon page markers. They also lay open without breaking the spine. Whats not to like about that?
These books are the perfect gift for the business person in your life. Honest!
