In Search of Excellence: Lessons from America's Best-Run Companies
The "Greatest Business Book of All Time" (Bloomsbury UK), In Search of Excellence has long been a must-have for the boardroom, business school, and bedside table.
Based on a study of forty-three of America's best-run companies from a diverse array of business sectors, In Search of Excellence describes eight basic principles of management -- action-stimulating, people-oriented, profit-maximizing practices -- that made these organizations successful.
Joining the HarperBusiness Essentials series, this phenomenal bestseller features a new Authors' Note, and reintroduces these vital principles in an accessible and practical way for today's management reader.

Absolute must-read if you want to learn how to be at the top of your career in business or elsewhere. I read this gem many years ago and stumbled on an old copy, which i read again from cover to cover.
Thanks to this book, I did great and motivated others to do the same. It's a practical primer on how to succeed in business. It's literally a "Don't leave home without it" book and as good as a top-tanked MBA school course. I keep it next to my copy of "7 Habits of Highly Effective People".
