My friend Andy Kessler has up a great list of “business” books that he has found interesting. I say “business” because, like me, Andy defines business fairly broadly, and is more interested in books that turn or refocus his investing lens. He is not interested in the latest “get rich quick” investing books, nor is he a big reader of middle-management tomes about how to win/inspire/lead/change etc.
So, as I spin my chair around here in the home office, here are some more business-y books that I would add to Andy’s list of head-turners:
- Cash Nexus, by Niall Ferguson
- The Intelligent Asset Allocator, William Bernstein
- The Theory of Gambling and Statistical Logic, Richard Epstein
- Triumph of the Optimists, by Elroy Dinson, et al.
- Only Yesterday, Frederick Lewis Allen
- The Poverty of Historicism, Karl Popper
