Since 2007, the Porchlight Business Book Awards have recognized the best books in the business genre every year, and all the people who help bring them to life. While books chosen by Porchlight are not always what most would consider a traditional business book, they are the books believed to be the most important for businesses to consider.
This year, Don’t Be Evil: How Big Tech Betrayed Its Founding Principles—and All of Us by Rana Foroohar was named Business Book of the Year. A penetrating indictment of how today’s largest tech companies are hijacking our data, our livelihoods, our social fabric, and our minds-from an acclaimed Financial Times columnist and CNN analyst. Rana Foroohar tells the story of how Big Tech lost its soul-and ate our lunch. Through her skilled reporting and unparalleled access-won through nearly thirty years covering business and technology-she shows the true extent to which behemoths like Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon are monetizing both our data and our attention, without us seeing a penny of those exorbitant profits.
