It's shaping up to be a pretty good year for Christmas presents, what with readers seemingly having enough spare cash on hand to consider making all kinds of investments. The only sobering title in the November list is Niall Ferguson's The Ascent of Money. So here are the top-five-selling management books for last month, according to data kindly provided by Dymocks.
- From 0 to 130 Properties in 3.5 Years, Second Edition
by Steve McKnight
Accumulating all those assets in such a short time is indeed an impressive feat --- Aussie readers are so impressed, they've moved this book into the number one position for November. Although I can't help remembering the title of the book Steve Martin used to say he wrote: How I Turned a Million in Real Estate into 25 Dollars in Cash.
- Top Stocks 2010 Special Edition
by Roth Martin
What better way to learn the ins and outs of investing than by looking at the examples of those who have weathered the current economic storms?
- Who Moved My Cheese?
by Spencer Johnson
This perennial list favourite makes yet another appearance in the top management books with its seemingly timeless advice on adapting to change.
by Alice Schroeder
Another in the list of "how did they do it" books this month, Snowball recounts the life and times of Warren Buffett, the legendary "Oracle of Omaha".
- The Ascent of Money
by Niall Ferguson
Is money the root of all evil? I can only note that the subtitle of the book is "A Financial History of the World", while the description attached to the TV version (which aired on the ABC earlier this year) was "Dreams of Avarice".
