Why A Best Small Business Books award?
Not only do the books provide actionable information to Small Business Trends core audience of entrepreneurs and small business owners / managers, but the list of books also makes for great gift ideas for small business owners. “Small business books, which seldom get the recognition they deserve, get their own spotlight with these awards. The avid reader response to our weekly small business book reviews, (hyperlink) make this a perfect fit,” said Campbell. Small business books on marketing, management, social media, entrepreneurship, human resources, and economics are hot categories this year.
The interest in business book reviews grew so fast in 2010 that Small Business Trends added two new book reviewers / editors to its team and reviewed 20 more business books this year than in 2009. “Focused on bringing the small business community actionable information, we write an in-depth review of 1-2 new small business books each weekend, said Ivana Taylor the site’s Senior Book Editor. ”This year’s Editor’s Choice award books will be selected from the more than 60 books reviewed in 2010 on our site. While originality and high-quality writing will be judged, the most important criteria is useful content for small business owners and entrepreneurs,” Taylor added.
