News & Opinion: 2012 Business Book Awards

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:00 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Thousands of business books are published each year, each with the potential to promote change and enlighten the way people think about business. We began recognizing these efforts in 2007 with the 800-CEO-READ Business Book Awards, highlighting the best works in a number of categories. Each book is judged on the originality and applicability of its ideas and the quality of its content. Below is a list of all the books we have chosen over the years—overall winners, category winners and runners up.

We have now opened submissions for the 2012 Awards. Any business book published in the U.S. within the year 2012 is eligible within the following categories:

Entrepreneurship/Small Business
Marketing and Sales
Personal Development
General Business

All entries must be postmarked by October 15, 2012.
Semifinalists will be announced December, 2012.
Winners will be announced January, 2013.
