Friends, I just returned from the Frankfurt Book Fair and am very happy and proud to announce that Paper Money Collapse won the getAbstract 2012 International Book Award.
Out of thousands of business and economics book reviewed by getAbstract each year, they awarded the prize for best English-language book to two titles. The other winner was “Too Big To Know” by American technologist David Weinberger.
I am absolutely delighted. GetAbstract is a prestigious award that has been presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair for 12 years. Past recipients include Niall Ferguson, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Robert Shiller, Thomas Sowell, Bill Bonner and Lila Rajiva, and Benoit Mandelbrot and Richard L. Hudson, among others.
Many thanks to Mr. Rolf Dobelli and his team at getAbstract, and many thanks to the entire team at John Wiley & Sons, my publisher. In particular, I like to thank my editor in the US, Debra Englander, who liked my draft and book proposal back in late 2010 and has supported this project ever since. Thanks, Debby.
