Galley Cat ran a quick post about the FT/Goldman Sachs 2012 Business Book of The Year shortlist that was announced last week. The site directed people to excerpts, but they used Amazon book page links for all of them.
I tracked down some excerpts to the chosen books as well. I realize that some of them might be the same content you would get by downloading an Kindle sample, but with all of these, you can be reading words from the book in one click.
I put them all into a Storify thread to make it a little prettier and easier to share.
