How Steve Jobs Solved the Innovator's Dilemma 424

hype7 writes "With yesterday's release of the Steve Jobs biography, a raft of interesting information has come to light — including Jobs' favorite books.

The book explains how in the pursuit of profit, good managers leave their companies open to disruption.
