2. "The Black Jacobins" - C.L.R. JamesThis is a powerful history of the Haitian Revolution of 1794-1803, which became the model for Third World liberation movements. A barely literate slave, Toussaint L'Ouverture, lead the people of San Domingo against successive invasions by French, Spanish, and English forces. Oh yea, and in the process he helped form the first independent nation in the Caribbean.
3. "Only the Paranoid Survive" - Andy GroveI read this book as part of my MBA program. It's full of common sense, which, while I didn't know it at the time, isn't so common. 4. "Focus" - Al Reis
This is an interesting pick. Marketing "expert" Al Ries believes that focus is the answer to continued growth and prosperity. You know, the common sense approach that Apple and almost no one else seems to follow these days: focus on core products and avoid the siren song of everything else. Of course this isn't the only way to success and lots of companies that focus fail while lots of companies that diversify succeed. Notwithstanding that, focus is the key to mindfulness.
5. "My Years at GM" - Alfred SloanThis is a book that everyone talks about but few people have read. Bill Gates, who did read it, called it the best business book every written. Peter Drucker said the same thing. A great story about how to lead, organize, and communicate things at a large organization.
