A few weeks ago, I pointed to a downloadable list of business books that may be overrated. The list came from a BNET feature package on business books, and it included an interesting assortment of titles, such as In Search of Excellence and The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.
Now it's time to look at the flip side: 10 underrated business books. This list also comes from the BNET package and is available as a PDF in the TechRepublic Downloads Library. The list is subdivided into economics, marketing, management, and personal development and includes books ranging from Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America to How to Win Friends and Influence People to Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything.
