You love business books?

So u love business books. And you religiously pursue all those hot sellers showing up in the marquee. But they are so many of them. How do you make sure you separate the wheat and the chaff.

I tried to rummage through the Internet to pick that one book to gift a well read friend of mine, an oppurtunity to impress him. And then I bumped across a site which listed favourite books of people about whom busines books are written. So here I compile them for you, the list straight from the horse's mouth of the who's who in the industry.
