Three books published by Wharton Digital Press were named finalists for the 2018 INDIES Book of the Year Awards. Foreword Magazine announced:

Foreword’s editors selected finalists from more than 2,000 entries across 56 genres, the organization said. A panel of more than 120 librarian and bookseller judges determine the winners, which will be announced on June 14. Foreword hosts the awards annually as part of a mission to find and share the best books from university and independent publishers, the organization says.

Go Long

An 800-CEO-Read bestseller, Go Long examines how some of the world’s most prominent business leaders resisted short-term pressures to successfully manage their organizations for the long term.

David M. Rubenstein, co-founder and co-executive chairman of The Carlyle Group, has called it “mandatory reading for the CEOs and boards of all public companies.”

“One of my fundamental beliefs as CEO is that prioritizing the short-term at the expense of the long-term is simply not sustainable and perpetuates the kinds of boom-splat cycles that aren’t good for any business or stakeholder,” says Indra Nooyi, the former CEO of PepsiCo.

She added: “That’s why Go Long is a must-read.”
