Five Books Arrogant CEOs Need to Read

In keeping with the cold new financial day in which we find ourselves, Forbes wants the embattled -- and possibly embittered -- CEO to be prepared -- literally -- for all that may yet come.
The economic downturn has brought even the most arrogant CEOs to their knees, and it has created a potentially valuable teaching moment for those would-be masters of the universe. To help them begin the new year in the proper spirit, here are five books to peruse in 2009.
Included in Forbes’ round-up is Phil Rosenzweig’s The Halo Effect (Free Press) which is not to be confused by a very well-reviewed 2004 novel by M.J. Rose with exactly the same name which, by the way, has absolutely nothing to do with the “Eight Other Business Delusions That Deceive Managers” mentioned in Rosenzweig’s subtitle.

Forbes’ very entertaining piece is here.
