I know, I know, we have tons of list of must read already. So it does not hurt to go over another one:
Marcus Aurelius, The Emperor’s Handbook.Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning.
Tom Wolfe, A Man in Full.Michael Lewis, Liar’s Poker.
Jim Collins, Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap…and Others Don’t.
Robert Cialdini, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion
Richard Tedlow, Giants of Enterprise: Seven Business Innovators and the Empires They Built
Niall Ferguson, The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World.
Clayton M. Christensen, The Innovator’s Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail
Stephen R. Covey, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
Bill George, True North: Discover Your Authentic Leadership. 
Surprised that "Good to Great" could make to the list in year of 2012. (The great companies in the 2001 book include Circuit City, Fannie Mae and Wells Fargo.)

  1. In Cynthia Montgomery's book The Strategist, the author mentioned that "Good to Great" was the most popular business book among the (entrepreneurs, owners and presidents) students. Probably not surprising. EOP pick the books that fit their philosophy and pass it down the command chain.
