From the Axiom website we learn more about the award:
In August of 2007, Jenkins Group launched the Axiom Awards, “designed to honor the year’s best business books and their authors and publishers.” Now, ten years later, we announce the winners of the tenth annual, 2017 Axiom Business Book Awards, honoring the year’s best business books, their authors, and publishers.
The 76 medals went to publishers and authors representing 17 U.S. states; 2 Canadian provinces; the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and Switzerland.
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 an information-hungry segment of the population, eager to learn about great new books that will inspire them and help them improve their careers and businesses.
My congratulations go out to the two other authors who were honored in this category.
