Almost practically radical
Almost does count in business books. William C. Taylor's new book, Practically Radical, compiles a list of case studies on how companies innovate. He goes thru themes like how company executives study their company's roots to rediscover it's original purpose to reinvigorate it's profits. The problem I found is this book rehashes bunch of other books I've read including, Delivering Happiness, Outliers, Drive, Seth Godin's books + more. This might mean you can just read this book instead of those, but for me I was let down while looking for new insights. There were a few cases that I hadn't heard before, and those made the book almost worth reading.
