Please recommend a good, short business biography! Preferably one about an entrepreneur.

I don't know what you consider short, but certainly Walter Isaacson's bio of Steve Jobs is fascinating.

Dave's Way
This is a great business book, by Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy's. It is a mix of auto-biography, business advice, and down-home advise. Great, easy read. Enjoyable and educational.

Founders at Work is pretty good.

While its been a long time since I read this Edwin Land biography, I remember that it was very good.
