LUCERNE, Switzerland, Sept. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — getAbstract is pleased to announce the finalists of the getAbstract International Book Award 2022 in the main category “Business Impact”. The four-person jury for the book award includes experts from getAbstract and the editorial staff of the German business magazine brand eins. The award focuses on work that encourages critical thinking, fosters mutual understanding, and offers innovative approaches to leadership and business. Winners will be announced on 20 Oct 2022, at the Frankfurt Book Fair, alongside the winners in the Learning Impact and Readers’ Choice categories.
“Renowned books aren’t always accessible; useful books aren’t always well-written. Books narrowly tailored to a subject can get bogged down in detail, but encyclopedic books often lack focus. For the shortlist, we selected books that Perfectly combining applicability, innovation and style,” explains jury member and Senior Managing Editor at getAbstract, Erica Rauzin.
Co-juror Arnhild Walz-Rasilier, Vice President at getAbstract and initiator of the award, adds: “With the getAbstract International Book Award, we can draw attention to particularly outstanding books beyond sales figures or bestseller lists.”
