6 Books Shortlisted for the Financial Times Business Book of the Year Award

Two months ago, I posted about the 10th annual Financial Times & McKinsey business book of the year award. Last night, the Financial Times posted extracts from the recently announced shortlist, which cuts the nominees down from 16 to 6. (The £30,000 prize will be awarded on November 11.) It’s a great resource. There are a lot of excellent business books out there and everyone has only so much time to read. The extracts give casual readers a taste of each selection. Here is a link.
