Richard Pachter's choices for 2006's best business books

January 01, 2007
http://wordsonwords.com/bestof2006.html
Regardless of consolidation and other challenges that threaten the publishing world like most industries authors still choose this venerable medium to share their thoughts. And people, with more choices than ever, still read books.

Business books, in particular, are an odd lot; those attempting to capture the latest trends are often dead on arrival. But others possess value beyond the time and place they first appear. Here are ten books from 2006 that might pass that test of time.

Please note: some books may be missing from this list, as they may not be available.Our list may include different editions than originally listed
