Inc.com’s Geoffrey James has created a great list of “business books that have literally changed the world.” He asks readers to suggest what other books should have made this list. I suggest Michael Porter’s Competitive Strategy: Techniques for Analyzing Industries and Competitors (1980). Your suggestions? Here’s his list:

10.  The Art of War, by Sun Tzu (3rd Century BCE)

9.    The Prince, by Niccolò Machiavelli (1532)

8.    The Wealth of Nations, by Adam Smith (1776)

7.    How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie (1936)

6.    Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand (1957)

5.    The Greatest Salesman in the World, by Og Mandino (1968)

4.    The Soul of a New Machine, by Tracy Kidder (1981)
