Congratulations to Seth Godin and all the authors who are winners of the 2008 800ceoread Business Book Awards.
800-CEO-READ, an online bookseller and champion of great ideas in the business book category, today announced the winners of its second annual 800-CEO-READ Business Book Awards. TRIBES: We Need You to Lead Us by Seth Godin (Portfolio), was named the Best Business Book of the Year along with winners in 13 other categories.
In naming Tribes the overall winner, Jack Covert, founder and president of 800-CEO-READ said, "Tribes is Seth's most ambitious effort and potentially his most powerful, because when Seth talks about leadership, he skips the usual and goes right to the heart of it. More importantly, he is giving us a new way to talk about leadership."
The company received 280 entries, which were evaluated and critiqued by the company's editorial staff. The semi-finalists were announced over the last two weeks on 800-CEO-READ's website, www.800ceoread.com.
