Five books in sixty seconds

Fast Company (for which I sometimes write) has a look at five business books just out. Smart Books 2008 looks at The Big Switch: Rewiring the World, From Edison to Google (Nicholas Carr), Strategy and the Fat Smoker: Doing What's Obvious but Not Easy (David Maister), The Breakthrough Company: How Everyday Companies Become Extraordinary Performers (Keith R. McFarland), The Pirate's Dilemma: How Youth Culture Reinvented Capitalism (Matt Mason), and The Riddle: Where Ideas Come From and How to Have Better Ones (Andrew Razeghi).

It turns them into an elevator pitch review, and gives a Pick It or Skip It recommendation at the end.

You can't beat that, unless you're hoping for a review that will save you from having to read the books.
