Two SIOPers Among getAbstract’s International Book Award Nominees

Rule Makers, Rule Breakers by Michele Gelfand, Scribner, and The Surprising Science of Meetings by Steven G. Rogelberg, Oxford UP, are 2 of the 20 books nominated for the 19th annual getAbstract International Book Award.

The award recognizes two English and two German books that have made outstanding contributions to social debates over the past year. For the first time, getAbstract will partner with the business magazine Capital.

“Presenting interesting and relevant books to our readers has always been an integral part of Capital’s format,” said Horst von Buttlar, Capital’s editor-in-chief. “I’m delighted that we’re giving business books a bigger stage with this joint award.”

The award ceremony will take place on October 16, 2019, at 4:00 PM CEST, in the reading tent at the Agora of the Frankfurt Book Fair. Interested parties are cordially invited.
