Calling all bookworms! What should we be reading this summer?

    Hi Everyone –

    As the weather starts to get warmer, I'm sure we're all in the midst of tidying up our summer reading lists. Instead of searching the web for bestseller lists, I figured we could tap one another in the community to help each other round out our lists.

    I'm curious: What book have you read that has made a big impact for you professionally?

    One book that I enjoyed reading recently was The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg. I found it fascinating how habits influence our decision making and how many notable people, big businesses and communities transformed their habits to turn their struggles into success.

    I'm interested to hear what you have read and what suggestions you have to add to everyone's summer reading lists.

    Thanks in advance for sharing!

    Best,
    Chris

    Chris,

    I just got done with Project Azorian: The CIA and the Raising of the K-129 and it's a pretty amazing story!  Going to start on The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean and then 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Harari after!

    Cant wait to see what others are opening up!

    Thanks for sharing those suggestions, @Ed Bobak!

    ​​The Disappearing Spoon looks quite interesting - I'll have to add that one to my list.

    I've seen a few other interesting books floating around the office lately - First, Break All the Rules by Marcus Buckingham & Curt Coffman and Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't by Jim C. Collins.

    Has anyone read these books or have any other books that they'd like to recommend?
