THE CORNER OFFICE by Adam Bryant - Best Business Books

2,038
-1

Published on

The book is the record of candid interviews with 70 CEO's. The interviewer is a Pulitzer Prize winning columnist and deputy national editor for the New York Times, and the former business editor of Newsweek. There is no shortage of airbrushed biographies of "outstanding CEOs" but this is different. It is filled with their insights, the hard lessons learned on the way up and the qualities they really value in others.

Everyone in a leadership role should hear what they say - parts will confirm what you have thought, parts will challenge you, and parts will surprise you.
