How about shortlisting a book that hasn’t been written yet?
Posted by: Keir Graff

I don’t usually cover this award, but why not? The shortlist for the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year has been released (by the Financial Times, natch):

The Age of Turbulence, by Alan Greenspan (Penguin)

The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, Nassim Nicholas Taleb (Random)

Immigrants: Your Country Needs Them, by Philippe Legrain (Princeton Univ.)

The Last Tycoons: The Secret History of Lazard Freres & Co., by William D. Cohan (Doubleday)

Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything, by Don Tapscott and Anthony D Williams (Portfolio)

Zoom: The Global Race to Fuel the Car of the Future, by Iain Carson and Vijay V. Vaitheeswaran (Hachette/Twelve)

Most award lists tend to be populated with books that have been kicking around for at least a month or two, but the fast company at the Financial Times has included one book that’s barely a week old (The Age of Turbulence) and one (Zoom) that will be published next week. And they say businesspeople are obsessed with currency.
