Publisher's Summary

From Peter Drucker to Sheryl Sandberg, from The Five Dysfunctions of a Team to Creativity Inc., here are the 50 most important titles on organisational and personal success. Brand new title in the best-selling series.

What do great enterprises have in common? What sort of person starts them? A single idea can help you find the next big thing, but it takes time to trawl through hundreds of business books to find inspiration. 

With insightful commentaries on the landmark writings of old and new, 50 Business Classics presents the great entrepreneur stories, the best management thinking and the proven ideas on strategy, innovation and marketing - in one volume.

50 Business Classics presents the key ideas from classic texts such as My Years with General Motors and Michael Gerber's The E-Myth Revisited to contemporary business lessons from the rise of tech giants like Google, Apple and Amazon. It contains revealing biographies of luminaries like Steve Jobs and Warren Buffett, as well as lesser-known stories including creation of publishing giant Penguin and Chinese behemoth Alibaba. 

Here you'll find the texts and ideas that matter in:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Leadership
  • Management
  • Strategy
  • Business history
  • Personal development
  • Technology and innovation 

Summarising the smartest thinking for today's professional success, 50 Business Classics provides inspiration and insights for entrepreneurs, executives and students of business and management alike.

I love the book and the narrator !!

Can a narrator influence you to buy another audible book ? In my case yes.....John Chancer did a fabulous narration of another great book in 50 Classics series.
The series is not a summary of books. The authors have taken great efforts in selecting 50 Business Classics and distilled these books for us. Great content, and flow. These books are going to make you buy additional books. I bought 3 after reading the first book. I bought this book as Audible, Kindle and a print edition.
