Top 100 Best Books for Managers, Leaders & Humans

Somebody forwarded me a website/blog, who has compiled a list of Top 100 Best Books for Managers, Leaders & Humans. Its not his rating, but compiled based on Google, Amazon and other sources. I have read quite a few books in this list, seems good .. I just read the top 75 books, but for the others, he is asking for an email id to send a pdf version !! Sorry, I do not give out email ids to unknown people ;-) Personally, I feel this is a good list, but for the fact you need to send an email to get the complete 100.
