Business Books November 10, 2008

imagesI cannot stand to read business books.  I find them dreadfully boring and ridiculously repetitive.  Almost every single book I have read in the realm of business could have been summed up in the first ten pages.  Everything that follows is just the same thing summarized in a slightly different way.  These authors surely got an A+ for their summarizing skills in their high school English classes when writing book reports.

My newest theory is that they are long because no one would buy them if they were only ten pages.  And why should they?  If they were really ten pages, most people could skim over it in the time it takes them to read the book jacket of any other book they were considering for purchase.

And more importantly, a little pamphlet doesn’t look all that impressive on the shelf.  When you are a book snob like me, that is a very important consideration.
