Read Founder's Dillema, Business Model Generation, and Zero to One. Also helpful would be Finance for Managers, Marketer's Toolkit, Work Rules, the One Minute Manager, Manager's Toolkit. Popular books worth checking out (but only have one central idea each) are: Getting to Plan B, The Lean Startup, and Action Trumps Everything. z

The Lean Startup is a must read in my opinion.
Also Mastering the Rockefeller Habits is packed with good ideas as well.
