Everybody's favorite flesh-colored newspaper, the Financial Times, announced today its shortlist of the best business books of the year. (Goldman Sachs co-sponsors the contest.) And the nominees are:

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything, by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner (Inc. columnist Michael S. Hopkins tackled Freakonomics in his August column.)

Which of these six is your pick and why? Was Blink robbed in your opinion? What other books would have made the short list if you had been on the judging panel?
