And the 2015 getAbstract International Book Award Winners Are…


For the 15th time, getAbstract has selected four outstanding business books for its annual International Book Award. The winners were announced, as always, at the Frankfurt Book Fair. And here’s this year’s finest:

In German:

  • Update, Warum die Datenrevolution uns alle betrifft, Michael Steinbrecher / Rolf Schumann, Campus Verlag
  • Die neue Ordnung des Geldes, Warum wir eine Geldreform brauchen, Thomas Mayer, FinanzBuch Verlag

In English:

  • BOLD, How to Go Big, Create Wealth, and Impact the World, Peter H. Diamandis / Steven Kotler, Simon & Schuster, Inc.
  • SAPIENS, A Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Noah Harari, Harper/HarperCollins Publishers

getAbstract is continually screening new publications from all corners of the world, with special focus on the fields of Management, Strategy, Sales & Marketing, Human Resources, Economics, Politics, Finance, Career, and Trends. If something looks promising, we examine it closer and our editorial team decides whether it is really good enough to be summarized. Hence, our pick is already the crème de la crème. To pick four titles that stand out from this elite group is no easy task. Still, year after year, we rise to the challenge.

That’s why the getAbstract International Book Award is not only the longest-standing but, perhaps more importantly, is also one of the most prestigious business book awards on the planet.

“There is no group of people in the whole world that reads more business books than the people at getAbstract”, says Rolf Dobelli, best-selling author and co-founder of getAbstract, “And there is no group of people that rates books better than the editorial team of getAbstract. So if you look for an ideal group of people to select these books it’s really the people at getAbstract.”
