7 Vastly Overrated Business Books

  • 7 Vastly Overrated Business Books

    By Geoffrey James

    Most business books are awful, some are mediocre and a (very) few are truly useful.   And then there are business books that aren't exactly dreadful, but have reputations that have been bloated way out of proportion.

    You see them on corporate shelves everywhere and they're cited at meetings, conferences and seminars, but when you dig a little deeper, and think about their contents, you're forced to wonder WTF the fuss is all about.

    This post identifies some highly popular business books which, in my view, are absurdly overrated.  I'm sure there are many true believers out there who will disagree, but I can't help but wonder whether somebody hasn't been drinking some Kool-aid by the gallon.

    NOTE: To view the books, click on the "NEXT" button on the upper right.

    IMPORTANT: Enjoy this post?  Then you'll probably enjoy my new book How to Say It: Business to Business Selling available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Indiebound.
