Books to Read (Managing Organizations)

Here are some excellent books on Managing Organizations that were recommended by Prof. Paul Ingram. As always quite a few of them are good for laymen and no not require you to do an MBA to appreciate the concepts they talk about.

Warning: The last two, according to Prof. Ingram, are slightly dry academic tomes. Caveat Emptor!
  • Why Smart People Make Big Money Mistakes And How To Correct Them [Gary Belsky, Thomas Gilovich]
  • The Winner’s Curse [Richard Thaler]
  • Competing by Design [Nadler and Tushman]
  • The Visible Hand [Alfred Chandler]
  • Tree: A Life Story [David Suzuki]
  • No Gods No Masters [Daniel Guerin]
  • Filling the Glass : The Skeptic's Guide to Positive Thinking in Business [Barry Maher]
  • How we know what isn’t so [Tom Gilovich]
  • Organizations in Action [James Thompson]
  • Organization and Environment [Lawrence and Lorsch]

Hi Sumit,

I am eagerly looking forward for the "Recommended Readings" on Accounting and Finance. Hope it will be soon up. I have posted a trackback to the collection in my blog
