CEO Reading Lists

Back in July, Fortune polled a number of executives to find out what’s on their summer reading list. They’re read everything from books about the financial crisis to tomes on history’s great leaders. Of course there are a number management self-help and how-do-I-run-this-damn-company? books, as well as a handful of fiction. The results of the poll are below:
