Jenkins Group Announces the
2008 AXIOM Business Book Awards Results

Traverse City, Michigan - On August 15th, 2007, Jenkins Group launched the first annual, 2008 Axiom Business Book Awards, designed to honor the year's best business books and their authors and publishers. Now, almost seven months and nearly 400 entries later, we announce the winners: on the following pages are the Gold, Silver and Bronze medal designations in each of the 25 Axiom Award categories.

"The Axiom Business Book Awards are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary business books and their creators, with the understanding that business people are a very well-read and informed segment of the reading population," said Jenkins Group founder Jerrold R. Jenkins. "Today's business book readers are eager to learn about great new titles that will inspire and inform them, and help them improve their careers and businesses."

The Axiom Awards results list includes categories of books intended for professionals (International Business/Globalization); for general consumers (Retirement Planning); books about business people (Memoir/Biography); and books meant to motivate and entertain (Business Fable). The largest categories in terms of participation were Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Success/Motivation, in that order. The big winners among publishers are Portfolio/Penguin with five medals, Wiley with four, and Free Press and Bloomberg with three medals apiece. Notable authors include Seth Godin, Vince Poscente, and Suze Orman (all medal-winners in the Success/Motivation category).

“We’re impressed by the current explosion of new business titles onto the market from around the world, and thrilled that so many of them entered our contest,” says Jenkins. “These Axiom Award-winning titles make up a very valuable reading list for those looking for cutting-edge ideas and advice.”

“With so many large companies currently downsizing, there’s a more entrepreneurial climate in the business world today,” says Jenkins. “All kinds of new enterprises are being created by some very talented people, and they keep up on the latest trends and new ideas through reading. These awards are meant to bring great books and great business people together.”
