Books and Authors important for GK Preparation for IIFT, XAT, SNAP

Questions on books and authors are very popular with entrance examinations. IIFT, in particular, has a question in tabular format in which the student is supposed to match the author with the book. More often than not, the books about which questions get asked are related to business or biographical sketches of the famous businessmen. Given below is a list of books that have released in the last couple of years. I recommend that you go through this list twice or thrice.
