We are getting close to that time of year when everybody pumps every possible media channel with their “best of…” Why should we be any different? So, here it is: The Montreal Business Book Review – Best Business Books of 2006.
It was not a formal process. I simply looked at my bookshelf and took ten titles that really struck me this year.

2. Zag: The Number One Strategy of High-Performance Brands by Marty Neumeier.
3. S.C.O.R.E. for Life: The Secret Formula for Thinking Like a Champion by Jim Fannin.
4. The Greatness Guide: Powerful Secrets for Getting to World Class by Robin Sharma.
5. Waiting for Your Cat to Bark?: Persuading Customers When They Ignore Marketing by Bryan Eisenberg, Jeffrey Eisenberg, and Lisa T. Davis.
6. The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business Is Selling Less of More by Chris Anderson.
7. Small Is the New Big: and 183 Other Riffs, Rants, and Remarkable Business Ideas by Seth Godin.

  1. Thanks for responding Shel It truly was the most important business book of this year – which I discovered after seeing how little came out this year.
    I wonder how many of the other authors on this list are paying attention like you are.

  2. Well, this is a very good list. Mine would include Convergence Culture by Henry Jenkins. Thanks for keeping our collective nose to the page, Mitch (what a great excuse to read actual PRINT)!
