|The Cutting EDGE, The Cutting Edge The most successful business people are often also the busiest, acknowledges Peter Krass, a regular contributor to Investors Business Daily and editor of the Book of Wisdom series. Therefore, he offers The Little book of Business Wisdom: Rules of Success from More Than 50 Business Legends. The advice is varied and often contradictory, but provides readers with a smorgasbord of ideas. From Lee Iacoccas guidelines for CEOs (“Make sure youre maximizing earnings today”) to Lillian Vernons questions for wouldbe entrepreneurs (“Are you prepared to work extremely hard?”), the advice is succinct but rarely simplistic.
