“Good management is the art of making problems so interesting and their solutions so constructive that everyone wants to get to work and deal with them.” — Paul Hawken

This is a list of my favorite and noteworthy management books.  I test drive many of these books at work, and turn the insight into action.  The bulk of the list is in categories so that you can explore relevant books, and you can easily compare against your existing library of management books.
