Business book of the year

The shortlist for this year’s Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award includes:

  • The Art of Choosing by Sheena Iyengar (Twelve/Hachette)
  • The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company that is Connecting the World by David Kirkpatrick (S&S)
  • The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis (Norton)
  • More Money than God: Hedge Funds and the Making of a New Elite by Sebastian Mallaby (Penguin)
  • Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy by Raghuram Rajan (Princeton University Press)
  • Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System–and Themselves by Andrew Ross Sorkin (Viking/Penguin)

“This year’s shortlist combines compelling narrative with trenchant analysis of the big questions facing the business and financial world, two years on from the collapse of Lehman Brothers,” said Lionel Barber, editor of the Financial Times. “The standard of writing is high and the insights into the causes and consequences of the global financial crisis are laid bare.”
