    I've got a question for all of you well read individuals out there. For my international business class, we need to come up with a book to do a book report on(soo 5th grade, I know). My prof gave us a list of books, but since there are 80 in the class, and this list is only 30ish, he told us to be prepared to use a book not on the list (no two people are going to have the same book).

    Anyway, I was wondering if you could give me a few international business-based book suggestions: remembering its a 300 level college course.

    Here are some he suggested:
    1984 - George Orwell
    The Smartest Guys in the room - Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind
    The Next 100 Years - George Friedman
    Bad Money - Kevin Philips
    Wealth of Nations - Adam Smith
    Six Degrees - Duncan Watts
    Aviation Insecurity - Andrew Thomas (My Prof)
    The Art of War - Sun Tzu

    There are more, but I think you get the jist of it.

    Thanks A TON!

    Smartest Guys in the Room is a great book. And....if you're like me, you're looking for an easy option. With this...you get a movie to supplement your retention of the book.
