The ABA Nielsen Book Booksellers’ Choice - Adult Non-Fiction Book of the Year award recognises the non-fiction new release that booksellers most enjoyed reading, marketing and handselling during the previous year.

We believe it is a special award because it is decided by the people who care enough to personally recommend and put a book in the hands of the reading public. 

This award is proudly supported on the membership's behalf by the seasonal Booksellers' Choice guides.
