SORT BY Relevancy
The 2014 Small Business Book Awards, now in their 6th year, celebrate the best business books that entrepreneurs, small business owners, CEOs, managers, and their staffs should read. They also recognize important resources supporting authors and the publishing industry. The small business community plays a key role by nominating, showing their support for, and voting on their favorites.
Back in 2007 we noticed that most business books being reviewed or winning awards were books of interest to the enterprise or corporate audience. No sites consistently covered books specifically for small business owners and managers, and entrepreneurs.
Thus began the weekend business book reviews at Small Business Trends. Since starting the book reviews, our book reviewing team under the leadership of Book Editor Ivana Taylor, has reviewed nearly 500 small business books, writing unbiased in-depth reviews.
These Awards are an outgrowth of the weekend book reviews. After publishing reviews, we frequently were asked for advice about which books to read. Rather than giving off-the-cuff responses, we decided to find a way to get a broader range of input on books worthy of recognition.
Let's extend a warm welcome to Ivana Taylor and Anita Campbell!
