Good to Great book favourite of Samit Shetty

2. The Age of Turbulence

by Alan Greenspan

3. The Goal

by Eli Goldratt and Jeff Cox

“One of the all time favourites around the importance of the fact that multiple short-term, local optima leads to chaos and not long-term global optima.”

4. Bag It All

by Nina Lekhi and Suman Chhabria Addepalli

“A good one to underline the unbelievable power of compounding in small businesses and how one things adds to10, as long as you are at it.”

“I don’t have a fifth in the list because I rarely read business books. Thanks for reminding me I need to read more.”
