Awards: 800-CEO-READ Shortlist

800-CEO-READ announced the shortlist for its 11th annual Business Book Awards. Editorial director Dylan Schleicher commented: "There is an existential question at the heart of each of the books on our shortlist this year. These include inquiries into our focus on competition and economic growth, examinations of what we might be sacrificing in the pursuit of technological progress and corporate profits, and expositions on the underlying nature and process of innovation, invention, and entrepreneurship. Each, in the end, is also an affirmation of our humanity, and a reminder that we must bring our full, authentic selves to work to build businesses and economies that serve people."
