FT announces business book longlist

10th August 2010

The longlist for the 2010 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award has been named.

Now in its sixth year, the prize seeks to recognise the 'most compelling and enjoyable insight into modern business issues'. The winning author will receive GBP 30,000, while GBP 10,000 will be awarded to the writers who make it onto the shortlist.

Ian Bremmer's The End of the Free Market, The Facebook Effect by David Kirkpatrick, Andrew Ross Sorkin's Too Big to Fail and How Markets Fail by John Cassidy are among the 16 titles in the running for the prize.

The six-strong shortlist will be confirmed on September 16th, before the winner is announced on October 27th in New York.

It was also revealed that Financial Times editor Lionel Barber, last year's winner Liaquat Ahamed and London Business School professor Lynda Gratton will be among the judges.

Explaining a notable absence from the panel, the organisers added: 'As a number of books on this year's longlist address various aspects of the financial crisis, [Goldman Sachs chief executive and chairman] Lloyd Blankfein is recusing himself as a judge this year.'

Ahamed won the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year 2009 for the 'beautifully written' Lords of Finance, which went on to earn the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for history.
