You’ll find instructions for completing a nonfiction book review attached along with a list of ~150 of the best business books. You’ll need to read and research one chosen book from this list, write an 8 page report, 12 point font, double- spaced, in MLA format. Please keep the following points in mind. Information about the author, Background information about the book, Author’s purpose-to inform? Entertain? Persuade? , Author’s thesis, Organization, Summary.

Second, an evaluation of the book which may include: Other reviews, Scholarship, Strengths and weaknesses

You may find some of these “topics” more (or less) pertinent to your particular book. Focus on those you think are most important, there is not a particular length required for any one section. I would expect the book description to be 65-75 percent of the report, the evaluation to be 25 – 35 percent.
The purpose of this report is to illustrate how you are able to apply the concepts and theories. Organizational behavior continues to evolve along with technology, global business, and organizational changes. As you grow in your careers, you will continue to encounter challenging organizational situations. How will you approach these differently given what you’ve learned from the book you chose to report on?
In addition, correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, paraphrasing, as well as proper citations are required. Please include a Works Cited page of all sources.List of Books
