Enrich, Kolhatkar on long list for FT/McKinsey Business Book of the Year
Books written by business journalists such as The Wall Street Journal’s David Enrich and The New Yorker’s Sheelah Kolhatkar are on the long list for the Financial Times Business Book of The Year.
Andrew Hill of the Financial Times writes, “The 17 books on the 2017 longlist include analyses of the implications of world-changing innovations, from the iPhone to drones; a lively account of the rise of Uber; and a sobering history of the role war, plague and catastrophe have played in shaping our economies.
“Among longlisted authors are Satya Nadella, chief executive of Microsoft; Thomas Friedman, who won the inaugural award 12 years ago with The World is Flat; and Nobel prizewinner Jean Tirole. The £30,000 award will go to the book that provides the ‘most compelling and enjoyable’ insight into modern business issues, including management, finance and economics.
“The panel of judges, led by Lionel Barber, FT editor, will announce a shortlist of up to six books on September 19. They will name the winner on November 6. Last year’s winner was Sebastian Mallaby for his biography of Alan Greenspan, The Man Who Knew.”
