As a business owner, I'm always trying to learn from the experience of other entrepreneurs, and that happens most often through reading their books. If you find yourself with some downtime over the holidays, here are the top books we buy in bulk and regularly recommend to clients and colleagues. Read them in any order - this just happens to be the order that I discovered them!
We recently sat down with Phil Simon, an award-winning author of four management books. His latest book, The Age of the Platform: How Amazon, Apple, Facebook,and Google Have Redefined Business was the 2011 recipient for the Axiom Best Business Technology Book. A recognized technology expert and sought-after speaker, his contributions have been featured on NBC, CNBC, Inc. Magazine, BusinessWeek, The Huffington Post, The Globe and Mail, Fast Company, the American Express Open Forum, ComputerWorld, Technorati, ZDNet, ABC News, Forbes, The New York Times, ReadWriteWeb, and many other sites.
