Best Business Books for the Holidays – A Gift Guide

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!
