TORONTO - Music industry maestro Bernie Finkelstein and CBC News senior business reporter Amanda Lang are among the finalists for this year's National Business Book Award.

Finkelstein's memoir "True North: A Life in the Music Business" (McClelland & Stewart) and Lang's exploration of innovation called "The Power of Why" (Collins, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers) made the short list for the $20,000 prize on Monday.

Other finalists for the 28th annual honour include journalist Chrystia Freeland for "Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else" (Doubleday Canada).

The short list is rounded out by author Douglas Hunter for "Double Double: How Tim Hortons Became a Canadian Way of Life One Cup at a Time" (HarperCollins Publishers).

The jury is chaired by Roger Martin, dean of the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management.

Jury members include Jane Cooney, William Dimma, Peter Mansbridge, Deirdre McMurdy and Pamela Wallin.

The award, co-sponsored by PwC and BMO Financial Group, honours non-fiction, Canadian business-related books.

The winner will be announced on May 28 at a Toronto luncheon.
