The greatest articles from the hottest business magazine of the past decade

Since 1995, Fast Company has been the place to turn for cutting-edge business ideas and profiles of amazing companies and their leaders. This hardcover collection gathers the magazine┬'s best and most enduring articles, the ones that generated the most buzz and the deepest insights.

These outstanding pieces include:
┬• ┬“The Brand Called You┬” by Tom Peters
┬• ┬“Free Agent Nation┬” by Daniel Pink
┬• ┬“In Search of Courage┬” by John McCain
┬• ┬“Malcolm Gladwell: The Accidental Guru┬” by Danielle Sachs
┬• ┬“Are You on Craig┬'s List?┬” by Katharine Mieszkowski
┬• ┬“Everything I Thought I Knew About Leadership is Wrong by Mort Meyerson

As Jim Collins writes in his foreword: ┬“Imagine you could sit at Thomas Jefferson┬'s dinner table and listen in on the conversation during the late 1700s. That┬'s the way I like to think of the best articles in Fast Company collected in this wonderful book. Reading them is like listening in on a series of fascinating conversations with some of the best minds and creative thinkers of a generation.┬”

This is the perfect book for Fast Company┬'s hundreds of thousands of devoted fans┬—and for others who missed these great articles the first time around.

The fun part of this book is to be able to look at articles written in the late 90s and early 2000s and know what has happened since. I thought it was also interesting to see the transition pre- and post 9/11. An interesting, fast read. Read full review
