Top 10 Business Bestsellers, February 2012.

Inc. magazine and 800CEOread blog compiled the list of Top 10 Business Bestsellers - February 2012, so we continue watching what books business leaders are buying for themselves and their people.

Customer service, conflict management, consumer finance, sales, great workplaces and social media are some of the subjects covered in these bestsellers.

End of Business as Usual by Brian Solis climbed from 8th place in January to 5th last month.

After two consecutive month there is no leadership title leading the list. The first place in February belongs to a book about customer service written by Harvard Business School professor:

1. Uncommon Service by Frances Frei and Anne Morriss

(Rewire the Way You Work to Succeed in the Consumer Revolution)

They have produced a global culture, shrinking the world one tweet at a time. These new tools have created an ever expanding "Egosystem," in which we all believe our lives deserve 24-hour broadcasts. Now, everyday people are looking to understand what is going on as a result of the social and mobile web. Educators are looking to connect with their students and business leaders are seeking to steer the company toward a new generation of customers. Are we in the age of enlightenment or are we lost in translation?
