Here is the New York Times Hardcover Business Bestsellers list for September, 2011.

A couple of observations:  we clearly still want to know just what caused the financial meltdown, and we keep looking for explanations.  And, personal and finance books seem to be in need.  There are a lot of “still on the list” books:  Ferris, the Heath Brothers, Hsieh, Schultz.

At the First Friday Book Synopsis, my colleague Karl Krayer and I have presented synopses of, either at our event or for a “private client,” #’s  2, 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 12, and 14.  I’m not quite sure that any of the new titles quite fit for the First Friday Book Synopsis.
