Lewis, Isaacson, Piketty & Me
Big news for The Boom! The long list for the FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award is out — and The Boom is on it.
Here’s the competition. Flash Boys by Michael Lewis. Gulp. Capital in the Twenty First Century by Thomas Piketty. Yikes. A forthcoming Walter Isaacson book. Plus the Koch Brother book, Dragnet Nation by my former colleague Julia Angwin, and others. Great competition, but what the hell. Go big or go home.
As the FT says, these are all “must read” books. Have you ordered yours?
