Recommended Reads, 19th in a Quarterly Series
Stuff I've read lately that I'd recommend:
Colonel Roosevelt (Morris). The long-awaited third in the TR trilogy. Not nearly as fast-paced as his ascendance and presidency, but still captivating.
Vision of the Anointed (Sowell) and The Future and Its Enemies: The Growing Conflict Over Creativity, Enterprise, and Progress (Postrel). I blogged about these two books late last year.
Try This: Traveling the Globe Without Leaving the Table (Freeman). Delightful exploration into different cuisines. You will be hungry and frisky after reading this.
Steve Jobs (Isaacson). Fantastic insights into a brilliant yet flawed man. Must read for business bio readers and non-readers alike.
The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life (Schroeder). Another brilliant yet flawed man. To use the book's central analogy, it's fascinating to see the snowball pick up snow over time.
