I finished "The General Managers" by John Kotter. I was really happy that I bought it for $0.01 plus $3.50 shipping. This is old research but it's a classic and the first study of its kind.

I'm also about half way through "Russia After the Global Economic Crisis" by Asland, Guriev, and Kuchins. I know Kuchins and have found the book excellent. Among other significant historical and prescient insights; the editors provide alternative explanations to Putin's federalist reconstruction that I completely missed. One of my business partners in Russia is also personal friends with Guriev (who is one of Russian President Medvedev's Golden 100) so we have lots of interesting discussions over garlic vodka and frozen Siberian fish.
