As I enter into my last semester of grad school, I have to say that I have read a lot of books. A LOT of books.
And since my degree is interdisciplinary, I have had the chance to read more than a few tomes that fall outside of my comfort zone. Some of them were rather dense, I have to admit, but others were incredibly enjoyable.
So, I figured I’d share a list of some of my favorites (especially those that have enhanced my performance at work) and see what others think of my list.
- Agendas, Alternatives, and Public Policies by John W. Kingdon
- Complexity: The Emerging Science at the Edge of Order and Chaos by M. Mitchell Waldrop
- Does Technology Drive History? Eds: Merritt Roe Smith and Leo Marx
- Human Built World by Thomas P. Hughes
- Seeing What’s Next by Clayton M. Christensen
- Six Degrees: The Science of a Connected Age by Duncan J. Watts
- The Art of the Long View by Peter Schwartz
- The Hidden Power of Social Networks by Robert L. Cross
- The Origin of Wealth: Evolution, Complexity and the Radical Remaking of Economics by Eric Beinhocker
- The Victorian Internet by Tom Standage
I’d be interested to hear if anyone has either read these books or has other recommendations. I am always looking for other good reads!
