Financial Journalists Name Money Magic 2022's Best Book on Investing and Personal Finance!
The Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW) announced the winners and finalists for its third annual Best in Business Book Awards, which recognizes and celebrates outstanding business journalism in books published between August 1, 2021, and July 31, 2022.
This year SABEW added a new category this year “Investing and Personal Finance” sponsored by Yahoo! Finance. Money Magic: An Economist’s Secrets to More Money, Less Risk, and a Better Life written by Laurence Kotlikoff and published by Little, Brown Spark, won in this category.
Caleb Silver, past SABEW president, committee co-chair and editor-in-chief of Investopedia led the Investing and Personal Finance judging team. The judges said of the winner, “Laurence Kotlikoff impressed us by translating complex topics into practical language and accessible advice. He challenges the conventional wisdom of the financial services industry, as well as some of the findings of behavioral economics, when it comes to questions surrounding key financial decisions such as buying a home or investing for retirement.”
SABEW is the world’s largest and oldest organization of business and financial journalists. The winners and finalists were chosen from SABEW’s shortlist by a prestigious panel of judges. Thanks to the authors and publishers who entered this year’s award competition and to the sponsors Investopedia and Yahoo! Finance.
