Go Long, the behind-the-scenes look at how some of the world’s most prominent business leaders resisted short-term pressures to successfully manage their organizations for long-term success, has been named a gold medal winner in the 2019 eLit Book Awards’ finance/investment/economics category.

The eLit Awards are dedicated to honoring the best e-books published each year intended for the North American market, according to Jenkins Group Inc., a Michigan-based book publishing and marketing services company that presents the awards.

In Go Long, authors Dennis Carey, Brian Dumaine, Michael Useem, and Rodney Zemmel take readers inside high-stakes business decisions that have enabled leading organizations to outsmart and outlast the competition. The book was inspired by the CEO Academy®, the annual off-the-record gathering of chief executives organized by the authors.

“Considering the enormous harm that short-term investing has done not only to companies, but to countries as well, this book should be required reading in boardrooms everywhere. A concise, powerful call for responsible, long-term business practices.”

Kirkus Reviews 

Go Long is also a finalist in the 2018 INDIES Book of the Year Awards, along with two other Wharton Digital Press titles—The Shopping Revolution, by Wharton professor Barbara Kahn; and Crack the C-Suite Code: How Successful Leaders Make It to the Top, by Cassandra Frangos.
