Loading up your Kindle or travel bag with summer reading? Business Week features a list of summer reading recommended by business professors. As you would expect, business books dominate – but there are a wide range of topics – and even a few novels.
I can personally recommend these titles from the list:
- The Ascent of Money (Penguin Press, November 2008) by Niall Ferguson
- Blue Ocean Strategy by W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne
And here’s the stack waiting for me (I’m away on business now, but already made a pile of books to take up to Lake Tahoe for 4th of July):
- Yes We Did! An Inside Look at How Social Media Built the Obama Brand (Voices That Matter) (New Riders Press, May 2009) by Rahaf Harfoush
- Strategy & The Fat Smoker (The Spangle Press) by David Maister
- Death Comes to the Archbishop by Willa Cather (I just recommended this to one of my colleagues who was in Santa Fe last weekend; haven’t read it in years and am looking forward to rereading this old favorite from college.)
- Bailout Nation: How Greed and Easy Money Corrupted Wall Street and Shook the World Economy by Barry Ritholtz et al
