The 30 books, part 1

I've gotten more mail about my MBA post than any in weeks and weeks. And all the mail says the same thing:

"What are the 30 books?"

I've got three answers. Here's the first one:

There aren't 30 books. There is no tiny canon of the essential books, that once read, will transform you into Warren Buffet or Mark Cuban. There are 300 books, though, and choosing an appropriate variety from the 300 will work just fine.

The point of my post was that the knowledge required is pretty small. The will is hard to find, of course, but you don't find will at business school.

Over the next week or two, I'll try to give an answer that some of you may find more satisfying.
