There will be a winning title for each category, as well as an overall Best Business Book choice for 2008. Each book will be judged on the originality of its ideas and content.
A celebration for the winning titles in each category, as well as a launch party for Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten's new book The 100 Best Business Books of All Time will also take place in NYC on January 26, 2009.
