News & Opinion: All about the Audies

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 4:27 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

While we were at the annual book convention, another semi-major event was taking place in the book, acutally in the audio world. The event: The Audies -- "annual awards recognizing distinction in audiobooks and spoken word entertainment."
There are around thirty categories -- some that you would guess: business, non-fiction, childrens', etc. and others that you may not guess such as package design, solo narrator (female/male), and achievement in production.
The business related winners include:
The World is Flat for the non-fiction unabridged award
Good to Great (read by Jim Collins) for the business award.
It'd be cool to be a judge; check out the rest here.
