10 Overrated Business Books (and What to Read Instead)
8. Atlas Shrugged
This preachy sanctimonious screed against social responsibility has been hijacked by the .1 percent (and the wannabe .1 percent) to justify a return to laissez faire capitalism along with the deconstruction of the social safety net.
Read this instead: "The Good Old Days: They Were Terrible," because it describes exactly what the U.S. was really like when laissez faire ruled the roost.
