亚马逊公布2020年最棒的20本商业书籍

亚马逊公布2020年最棒的20本商业书籍

Rachel King 2020年06月29日
“我已经很清楚哪些商业书籍是有价值的——要么是让我有新的思考,要么是一流的,要么是让我无法忘怀的。”

6月24日,亚马逊公布了今年到目前为止已经出版的最佳图书,该结果由亚马逊编辑团队评选得出。

尽管亚马逊在今年早些时候曾表示,在经济衰退期间,它将不再以销售图书为重,而是专注于打造其电子商务帝国,但这家零售业巨头仍继续发布了一份年度书单排行榜。2020年1月至6月出版的20本最佳图书中,涵盖了小说与非小说、悬疑和惊悚类、儿童与青少年等多种不同类型。

“我们一整年都在阅读,而且我们通常在这些书真正出版之前就已经读完了。”亚马逊的图书编辑克里斯•施洛普在接受《财富》采访时说,“到了5月,我已经很清楚哪些商业书籍是有价值的——要么是让我有新的思考,要么是一流的,要么是让我无法忘怀的。”

亚马逊图书编辑团队由七人组成,在过去的六个月里,他们从数百种图书中筛选出了前10名最佳图书:

《大嗓门女孩》,作者:Abi Daré

《隐藏的山谷之路:描述美国家庭的内心世界》,作者:Robert Kolker

《鸟与蛇的歌谣》,作者:Suzanne Collins

《金刚执事》,作者:James McBride

《漂亮的事情》,作者:Janelle Brown

《作家与情人》,作者:Lily King

《唉,不见了》,作者:Phuc Tran

《我们的城市》,作者:N.K. Jemisin

《乌娜乱套了》,作者:Margarita Montimore

《慈悲》,作者:Kiran Millwood Hargrave

在位于西雅图的亚马逊总部中,图书编辑们也阅读了无数的商业书籍,并评选出2020年迄今为止最好的20本商业书籍:

《小习惯》,作者:BJ Fogg

《资本与意识形态》,作者:Thomas Piketty

《亿万富翁的荒原——超级富豪与美国西部的重建》,作者:Justin Farrell

《天鹅绒绳经济》,作者:Nelson D. Schwartz

《工作的乐趣》,作者:Marie Kondo

《像火箭科学家一样思考》,作者:Ozan Varol

《设计你的工作生活》,作者:Bill Burnett and Dave Evans

《领导力就是语言》,作者:L. David Marquet

《激情经济》,作者:Adam Davidson

《领导战略与战术》,作者:Jocko Willink

《未来比你想象得要快》,作者:Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler

《这不是一个时尚的故事》,作者:Danielle Bernstein

《非常重要的人物》,作者:Ashley Mears

《和平的代价》,作者:Zachary D. Carter

《如何创新》,作者:Matt Ridley

《上游》,作者:Dan Heath

展望未来,亚马逊图书团队已经准备了很长的阅读书单,用于公布2020年的“年度最佳”榜单。

“瑞•达利欧的《原则》是我们几年前的最佳选择,我一直对他关于问题的看法很感兴趣,因此,即将在9月出版的《不断变化的世界秩序》是我非常期待的一本书。”施洛普说。“关于商业战略的《你接下来的五步行动》,正好是我喜欢的。但没有什么比发现一颗你之前未发现的宝石更有趣了,所以我期待着在今年结束前会有惊喜发生。”(财富中文网)

Amazon on June 24 announced the Best Books of 2020 published to date, as chosen by the retailer’s literary editorial team.

Although Amazon, which launched in 1994 as an online bookseller, said earlier this year that it would deprioritize book sales while concentrating on other arms of its e-commerce empire during the economic shutdown, the retail giant is still continuing to publish an annual midyear list. The top 20 books of the year so far—published between January and June of 2020—spans top picks across fiction and nonfiction, mystery and thrillers, children’s and YA (young adult), and more.

“We read voraciously throughout the year, and we usually read the books well before they are actually published,” Chris Schluep, Amazon books editor, tells Fortune. “By May or so, I have a good idea of what business books have stuck with me—either something that made me think differently, or a best-in-class, or a book that I just can’t get out of my mind.”

A team of seven, the Amazon Books editors have read hundreds of titles over the past six months to whittle the pile down to these top 10:

The Girl With the Louding Voice: A Novel by Abi Daré

Hidden Valley Road: Inside the Mind of an American Family by Robert Kolker

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes: A Hunger Games Novel by Suzanne Collins

Deacon King Kong: A Novel by James McBride

Pretty Things: A Novel by Janelle Brown

Writers & Lovers: A Novel by Lily King

Sigh, Gone: A Misfit’s Memoir of Great Books, Punk Rock, and the Fight to Fit In by Phuc Tran

The City We Became: A Novel by N.K. Jemisin

Oona Out of Order: A Novel by Margarita Montimore

The Mercies: A Novel by Kiran Millwood Hargrave

Based at Amazon HQ in Seattle, the Amazon Books editors also read countless business books, and determined these 20 titles to be the best business books of 2020 so far:

Tiny Habits: The Small Changes That Change Everything by BJ Fogg

Capital and Ideology by Thomas Piketty

Billionaire Wilderness: The Ultra-Wealthy and the Remaking of the American West (Princeton Studies in Cultural Sociology) by Justin Farrell

The Velvet Rope Economy: How Inequality Became Big Business by Nelson D. Schwartz

Joy at Work: Organizing Your Professional Life by Marie Kondo

Think Like a Rocket Scientist: Simple Strategies You Can Use to Make Giant Leaps in Work and Life by Ozan Varol

Designing Your Work Life: How to Thrive and Change and Find Happiness at Work by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans

Leadership Is Language: The Hidden Power of What You Say—and What You Don’t by L. David Marquet

The Passion Economy: Nine Rules for Thriving in the Twenty-First Century by Adam Davidson

Leadership Strategy and Tactics: Field Manual by Jocko Willink

The Future Is Faster Than You Think: How Converging Technologies Are Transforming Business, Industries, and Our Lives by Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler

Arguing With Zombies: Economics, Politics, and the Fight for a Better Future by Paul Krugman

More than Ready: Be Strong and Be You…and Other Lessons for Women of Color on the Rise by Cecilia Nuñoz

The Victory Machine: The Making and Unmaking of the Warriors Dynasty by Ethan Sherwood Strauss

Economic Dignity by Gene Sperling

This Is Not a Fashion Story: Taking Chances, Breaking Rules, and Being a Boss in the Big City by Danielle Bernstein

Very Important People: Status and Beauty in the Global Party Circuit by Ashley Mears

The Price of Peace: Money, Democracy, and the Life of John Maynard Keynes by Zachary D. Carter

How Innovation Works: And Why It Flourishes in Freedom by Matt Ridley

Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen by Dan Heath

Looking forward (because yes, there are still six more months of 2020), the Amazon Books team already has a long to-read list before completing a comprehensive “Best Of” list for the year.

“Ray Dalio’s Principles was our top pick a couple years ago, and I’m always interested in his take on things, so The Changing World Order, which publishes in September, is one I’m looking forward to reading,” Schluep says. “I would also say Your Next Five Moves, a book about business strategy, is on my radar. But there is nothing more fun than discovering a gem you didn’t expect to find, so I’m looking forward to a surprise or two before the year is over.”
