Top 10 Business Books
Here are ten brain-teasing, thought-provoking, self-helping books that I feel would be helpful to any Catholic in the workforce. If you don't have one of them, consider picking it up through Amazon.com using one of the links below. A portion of the sale (as much as 10%) will go to support CatholicCulture.org. I have not included Catholic titles because so many Catholic business books are either junk or not very helpful. If you have found a good one, let me know!
I threw Soccernomics in just for fun -- hey the World Cup is going on right now! And yes, I have read all or a good portion of each of these books.
These items are listed in no particular order. I have selected only books available through Amazon.com (most books are).

I really like David Allen, too. His approach to productivity is extreme common sense and I like that he doesn't have products to jam down your throat or that he doesn't get into all the "California nah-nah, noo-noo" stuff, as he calls it. It's straight-up practical insights.

I'm surprised that you didn't mention Austrian Catholic, Peter Drucker. His Effective Executive is required reading in my office once a year.
