The worst business book I've ever read.

When there's a lot to do, do the hardest thing first

I recently finished reading Oren Klaff's book Flip the Script and it's been on my mind for days as I tried to separate the useful bits of strategy from the stories and examples that made my blood boil. (His other book, Pitch Anything, is still on my list...)

Which got me wondering a few things...
1. Have you read this book? Did you feel the same way? Is it just me?
2. What's the worst business book you've ever read and why? How about the best?

Also, anyone want to weigh in on a few other books I have on my list to read? I'm considering: 
  • Think Again (Adam Grant)
  • Game Thinking (Amy Jo Kim PhD)
  • Hooked (Nir Eyal)
  • A World Without Email (Cal Newport) 
  • Badass (Kathy Sierra)
  • Gameify (Biran Burke)
  • The Forever Transaction (this one was just delivered to my doorstep today!)
  • The Motive (Patrick Lencioni)
  • Tools and Weapons (Brad Smith)
