Published May 27, 2016

McGraw-Hill Professional books recognized among the best of this year’s business publications

Professional Business Book Awards

Organized by Small Business Trends, the annual Small Business Book Awards recognize each year’s top publications for entrepreneurs and small business owners. The Awards honor both the authors and the publishing industries as key contributors in creating the literary works.

The 2016 Awards featured a Judging Panel of business professionals who selected winning titles based on content, usefulness and freshness. A separate Community Choice category of winners was chosen through public voting polls with a total of nearly 11,000 votes.

This year, 178 titles were nominated in the Small Business Book Awards, so we are extremely proud to have five McGraw-Hill Professional publications recognized as winners.
