The 800-CEO-READ Business Book of the Year Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System—And Themselves by Andrew Ross Sorkin, Viking Books, 624 pages, $32. 95 Even though Too Big to Fail was written during the same year the financial collapse occurred, Andrew Ross Sorkin has written what we predict will be the definitive book on the subject. Sorkin not only tells a gripping “perfect storm” story—reporting the gory details as our 401k’s disappeared and our financial system became nationalized—but he humanizes the players as well, resulting in an imminently readable, albeit lengthy, book.

Crush It!

By Porchlight

Gary Vaynerchuk, who many people know as the WineLibrary TV guy, has written a book called, Crush It! Why Now Is The Time To Cash In On Your Passion, that describes how he transformed a $4 million family business into a $60 million empire with the help of social media. Sounds simple on the surface, but of course it takes a lot of work, and Gary doesn't gloss over what it took him to make it happen: personal branding, hustle, and tireless hours of work are some of the elements he addresses in the book, with the clear and simple promise that the same result is possible for anyone willing to invest the work in their own passion.
