Best Business Books | 2016

"What we really need is not more authors, or better publishers. What we most need is a vastly better system to identify the books we will love ... "  TechCrunch
Beantown Web has developed such a system.  For the ninth year running Beantown Web has conducted a quasi-scientific meta-search to identify the best business books published during the calendar year -- the books most likely to add value to your career. This year's search began by identifying 11 "Best of" lists as follows: 

A total of 110 books were mentioned on at least one "Best of" list -- 77 of these books were mentioned only once.

Thirteen books were mentioned on three lists and have been placed on The Must-Read Shelf:
