While vacationing on the shores of Swiss Lake Lucerne the week before last, I learned that my book Super Structured: How to overcome chaos and win back time has been awarded Gold Medal in the Business Reference category in this year’s Axiom Business Book Awards.
(If I had brought a copy on my trip, me proudly celebrating these news would have looked something like in the above picture.)
The Axiom Awards are presented by Jenkins Group, who every year since 2007 honor the year’s best business books in the North American market and their authors and publishers through the award.
Among this year’s winners are also fellow Swedish author Jonas Ridderstråle for his and Julian Birkinshaw’s Fast/Forward: Make Your Company Fit for the Future (Stanford Business Books), Jeffrey Bussgang’s Entering Startupland: An Essential Guide to Finding the Right Job (Harvard Business Review Press), Anindya Ghose’s TAP: Unlocking the Mobile Economy (The MIT Press) and Sanyin Siang’s The Launch Book: Motivational Stories to Launch Your Idea, Business or Next Career (LID Publishing, just like me).
Earlier recipients of the award are prominent authors such as Nancy Duarte, Chris Anderson of TED, John P. Kotter, Marcus Buckingham, Peter Diamandis, Tony Robbins, Guy Kawasaki and others.
