News & Opinion: Hudson Booksellers Best Books of 2008

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:52 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Airport retailer Hudson Booksellers has announced its best books of 2008, and chosen five in the business category. They are: In general non-fiction, they chose Thomas Friedman's Hot, Flat & Crowded and Fareed Zakaria's Post-American World, both of which would feel at home on business bookshelves. They also chose Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food in this category which, although it's not necessarily a business book, many of us here liked a lot (we ran his Eater's Manifesto on ChangeThis). Hudson wants you to vote on the best books of the year as well. From their website:
Beginning Dec. 1, customers can log onto the Hudson Group website to vote for their own favorite titles of 2008. All entrants will be eligible to win all 30 Hudson 's Best titles! Visit (after Dec. 1) for more details.
David Sedaris's When You Are Engulfed in Flames was this year's overall winner. You can find the entire list here.
