Not to be outdone by our recent post about reading lists, Booz & Co.’s Best Business Books 2011 feature is a sprawling selection of books covering Management, Economics, Marketing, Ethics and other business-oriented fields. Some of the books were already in our wish lists, others were pleasant surprises. There’s a 35-page PDF of the feature here, but it requires (free) registration. Inside we highlight the second follow-up.

Finally, it appears that the speed of light (as a limit) is indeed in question as recent studies were able to repeat the first experiment’s results. We’ll certainly hear a lot more about this in the near future, as there is still plenty of doubt. In the meantime, for those concerned with the state of a world in which not even the speed of light is a certainty, we suggest a further cause for concern: our degrees of separation, which used to be 6, are now down to 4.74, according to researchers from the University of Milan and Facebook. Yes, apparently Facebook has a research department.
