Summer Reading


Among my goals for the summertime is to read and finish several books. In no particular order, here are the ones I most want to tackle:
  1. How Will You Measure Your Life? by Clay Christensen et al. A book on principles of success in business, ethics, and life from a highly regarded Harvard Business School lecturer.
  2. The Art of Strategy by Avinash Dixit and Barry Nalebuff. Game Theory in real life.
  3. Britain BC by Francis Pryor. An expert surveys what we know about ancient Britain and Ireland.
  4. Sublime Dreams of Living Machines by Minsoo Kang. A scholarly account of the automaton in the Western imagination.
  5. The Information by James Gleick. The story of Information Theory.
  6. Good and Real by Gary Drescher. Reconciling a mechanical view of the world with observations and issues in physics, ethics, and more. 
  7. The Obligation toward the Difficult Whole by Brian McHale. A former instructor of mine on postmodernist long poems.
  8. Morte d'Arthur by Thomas Malory. King Arthur's life, court, and death.
  9. Paterson by William Carlos Williams. A book-length poem on Paterson, New Jersey.
  10. Retrieving the Ancients: An Introduction to Greek Philosophy by David Roochnik. More than just Plato and Aristotle.
