FT/Goldman Sachs 2010 Business Book of The Year Nominees

The announcement came this morning for the long list for The Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Business Book of The Year.

You’ll see the list is heavily swayed by its headliners towards economic and global concerns, but this year they have taken a little wider view with the inclusion of books like The Art of Choosing and Union Atlantic.
