Business Book of the Year Award

This week the long list was announced for the Financial Times & Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award. Not surprisingly, lots of financial crisis and bad behavior, a little Internet and peak oil, a smattering of globalization, and some plain old running a business well. The list will be whittled down to six finalists on September 17th, and the final winner will be announced on October 29th. Here are the fifteen contenders for the award:

  • This Time Is Different, Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff

  • The Match King, Frank Partnoy

  • Lords of Finance, Liaquat Ahamed

  • The Myth of the Rational, Justin Fox

  • House of Cards, William Cohan

  • In Fed We Trust, David Wessel

  • Animal Spirits, George Akerlof and Robert Schiller

  • Free, Chris Anderson
