What has been the most influential business book you’ve read?

Why did it resonate so powerfully? Was it closely related to your profession? Or, was it very different? Did it present thinking that was closely aligned with your personal business philosophy? Or, did it open your eyes to a new way of thinking?

In an article in Wall Street Journal, Bill Gates reports on his favorite business book — “Business Adventures” from the 1960s.

“It’s certainly true that many of the particulars of business have changed. But the fundamentals have not. Brooks’s deeper insights about business are just as relevant today as they were back then.

These deeper insights highlight more about how run a strong business and lead in difficult circumstances; it’s core business advice that stands the test of time.
