Publisher's Summary

Series editor Andrew Leckey and guest editor Ken Auletta have scoured the print media, consulted with the editors of major business and general interest publications, and surveyed journalism school deans to find the best business stories from the last 12 months. Among those selected: Paul Krugman on the vulnerability of our economy and the long-term impact of September 11, from The New York Times Magazine; James B. Stewart on the irrepressible Michael Milken, from The New Yorker; and many others from the pages of the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Fortune, Harper's, and Wired. The second annual edition continues the excellence and comprehensive range of this fascinating anthology series.


What the Critics Say

"[The editors] cast their net wide, picking up some excellent stories from nontraditional sources that even avid readers of the business press may have missed." - USA Today, on the 2001 edition

Good Stuff

This book covered a lot of different topics, all of which were very interesting to me. As complex as some of the articles were, I never felt lost. Great inside look at the lives and personality profiles of Michael Miliken and Mary Meaker and a great analysis of Japanese economy. While it is reporting last years best stories, they are still relevant. Plus with 16 hours of content it will take you longer than a 2 days to finish it.

Who Picked These Stories?

This was like being read beadtime stories from a Newsweek magazine. In my opinion these are hardly the best business stories of the year and of little value as an audible option.
