This week I had the honor to attend the 2016 Business Book of the Year Awards dinner at London's National Gallery. Alongside the Book of the Year award, offered annually by the Financial Times and McKinsey & Company, they offer the Bracken Bower Prize for the best business book proposal by an author under 35. Along with Igor Pejic of Austria, and Nora Rosendahl of Finland, my book proposal for The Fuzzy and the Techie: Why the Liberal Arts Will Rule the Digital World, was a Finalist for the Bracken Bower Prize, and an excerpt from the proposal was published in the Financial Times on Friday November 18, 2016. The 2016 competition for the Bracken Bower Prize featured 80 nominations from 22 countries.
This year's FT Business Book of the Year Award went to Sebastian Mallaby for his superb and comprehensive book, The Man Who Knew, about the life and policies of Alan Greenspan.
