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.

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.
