It is now just over a year since Bad Buying was published and it has sold literally
millions thousands of copies all over the world. Thanks to everyone who has bought the book and all who have commented on and reviewed it on Amazon and elsewhere – that is much appreciated.
The book has been translated into Polish, and I’m delighted to say that this month it won the Coup de Coeur du Jury Prize at the Plumes des Achats procurement book awards in Paris. This contest is run by four leading procurement association (ACA, ADRA, Club des Acheteurs IT and X-Achats). The “reading committee” is made up of around 30 practitioners, academics and researcher in the field and books in both French and English are considered.
Unfortunately I could not go to Paris for the dinner and awards, but I’m very grateful to everyone involved – it was a very unexpected honour to receive the news! Well done also to the other prize-winners. The list is here with more details about the event and the associations involved.
