The holidays are upon us, and with that comes the conundrum of what to get those around you. Whether it is an office gift exchange, or a practical gift for a new graduate, business books are always at the top of my list. This is a perfect opportunity to inform and educate while gift giving. Plus, a gift card is boring!
Here are some of my top picks for this holiday season. Many of these books are not “new” books, but the information is invaluable!
