The Judges’ Winners are chosen by our esteemed panel of expert judges who will make their choices based on their area of expertise and review of the books.

It’s a Reading List, it’s a Best of List, it’s the Small Business Book Awards of 2014!

The Small Business Book Awards are so much more than your basic Book Awards.  We know that small business owners are insanely busy, and we also know you are voracious readers; always looking for ways of improving and growing your business. So where are you supposed to find the best books for small business owners? The Small Business Book Awards, of course.

The books that are nominated may not make the New York Times Best Seller list, but they are books that small business owners have read and nominated. They are books that our staff has read and reviewed and they are books that you should probably have on your nightstand or Kindle.

If you’ve got one of those books on the brain, nominate it now while you still can:
