Business by the books
Jeffrey J. Fox writes a list, in his book How to Become CEO, of books to study. The list includes The Bible, The Art of War by Sun-Tzu. The Book of Rings by Musashi Miyamoto, The Prince, Webster's Third Unabridged Dictionary, The Complete Works of Shakespeare, The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway, The Elements of Style by William Strunk and E. B. White and anything by Thomas Jefferson.
This is not the complete list, but I noticed he does not offer why to read these books--just instructs to study them. This is good advice because it forces the individual to study and think rather than be told why the book should be studied.
Outside of Shakespeare there are no books devoted to poetry.
