Just Mercy
2014 . Bryan Stevenson

Amazing book, highly recommend. Stevenson is a trailblazing lawyer who tells stories of his work fighting against unjust imprisonment, racial bias, wrongful sentencing, and to abolish capital punishment in the US. There’s also a movie based on the book.

Soft Power: The Means to Success in World Politics
2004 . Joseph S. Nye Jr.

image10

One of my favorite reads on international affairs. The US is a case study of a country that accumulated soft power and then squandered it through military misadventures and Trumpian “America first” policies

Titan
2004 . Ron Chernow

Favorite biography. Like or despise him, Rockefeller is one of the formative people of the 20th century

The Boys in the Boat
2013 . Daniel Brown

Great book on the Washington U rowing team and their journey to the 1936 gold medal. I was amazed by the adversity Joe Rantz went through growing up and how he persevered. I also learned a lot about rowing and how challenging of a sport it is

The Everything Store
2013 . Brad Stone

Loved reading about the origins and evolution of amazon, and learning more about the career of Jeff Bezos. Amazon has only gotten bigger and more dynamic since the book was written with the growth of AWS and acquisition of Whole Foods

Billion Dollar Whale
2018 . Tom Wright,Bradley Hope

Another quick read and salacious story. Astounding how a young, inexperienced man out of college fooled almost everyone from celebrities to government officials and corporate executives

No Country for Old Men
2006 . Cormac McCarthy

Thrilling page turner, enjoyed it as much as the movie!

Hero of the Empire
2016 . Candice Millard

Interesting book on Churchill in the Boer War, which influenced his entry into politics. Quick and easy read relative to a lot of bios on him.

Bad Blood
2018 . John Carreyrou

Good quick read on Theranos, one of the biggest corporate scandals you’ll ever hear about

The Road
2006 . Cormac McCarthy

I enjoyed this book, but struggled through it. I was waiting for more action, for a plot to develop, for detail on why/how this apocalyptic world came about. The setting of this world is beautifully described, but after awhile it became redundant and I got a bit bored waiting for an inflection point that didn’t come. This opinion probably puts me in the minority, given all the accolades it has earned.
