The Financial Times and Schroeders Group (investment managers) just announced the shortlist for their 2023 Business Book of the Year.
The six finalists, awarded to the author(s) of the book providing the “most compelling and enjoyable” insight into the most pressing business issues of the day, include works about the dangers posed by the mining of natural resources, how to handle failure and the challenges of navigating today’s increasingly rapid technological advances.
Judges say they look for books “whose insights and influence will stand the test of time,” and call the six books they chose “exciting, engaging and important titles that together provide a highly readable guide to the future of business.”
The winner of the global award—which will be announced in London in December—will receive £30,000 (about €34,442), although each finalist below gets £10,000 (€11,480).
Read on to see who and what they are and why, in the judges words, they were chosen.
