The Outsiders by William Thorndike
The next book on this list is The Outsiders by William Thorndike.
It was No. 1 on Warren Buffett’s recommended reading list from Berkshire Hathaway’s 2012 annual shareholder letter.
This book details the story of eight very different but highly successful CEOs and what exactly makes them so prosperous.
The CEOs come from companies such as General Cinema and The Washington Post Company. Buffett himself is profiled for his work running Berkshire Hathaway.
