Every year, the world-class editors at getAbstract read through the most inspiring, outstanding, and enlightening English and German nonfiction business literature available, and choose four recipients of the getAbstract International Book Award.
The competition is fierce as getAbstract assesses thousands of titles in the following categories: management, strategy, sales and marketing, human resources, economics, politics, finance and career development.
“We all know that the world of business is highly dynamic and competitive. Often, the smallest details – the right knowledge at the right time – can make the biggest difference,” says Patrick Brigger, Co-Founder and Chairman of getAbstract. “That’s why we don’t just compress knowledge, we also promote the authors and publishers who work tirelessly to give professionals the knowledge they need to stay ahead of the game.”
This year, the four winners were announced during the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany. And the winners are:
- Cyberpsychologie, Catarina Katzer, dtv Verlagsgesellschaft
- Der fremde Erfolgsfaktor, Jamal Qaiser, Wiley-VCH
The getAbstract International Book Award is now in its sixteenth year, and has carved a path of excellence and recognition for authors who are on the forefront of business insight and innovation. “I consider it a great honor to receive the getAbstract International Book Award 2016,” says Robert Tercek, author of Vaporized. “GetAbstract is the only organization that publishes detailed reviews of every business book, which means they are deeply knowledgeable about the entire competitive set of titles. The fact that my book Vaporized was chosen from such a broad collection of excellent work is a truly meaningful distinction.”
