Anyone have some reading recommendations for our group? Anything anyone wants to read for our first book club session?

Bob Brook's book list has tons to choose from but here are a few that we could start off with:
- The Power of Positive Deviance: How Unlikely Innovators Solve the World's Toughest Problems By Pascale, Sternin, STernin
- Antifragile: Things that Gain from Disorder By Nassim
- The Health Gap: The Challenge of an Unequal World By Marmot

Any other suggestions?

Kirstin Manges | 1 comments This is such a great idea!

Do we have a preference on how we want to use the “book club”?i.e., do we want to read those books that we “should read but never have time to,” or more creative/fun/inspiration, or a mixture of both?

Here is my personal read/reread list:
A. Classic business/QI/leadership
- Managing the unexpected – K. Weick & Sutcliffe
- Thinking, Fast and Slow – Daniel Kahneman (or Nudge)
- True North: Discover Your Authentic Leadership – B. George
- Switch: How to change things when change is hard – Chip Heath & Dan Heath
- Outliers - Gladwell
B. More for fun w potential application:
- The alchemist- Paulo Coelho
- The power – Naomi alderman
- Janesville – Amy Goldstein
- Dying – Cory Taylor
- Truth decay: an initial exploration of the diminishing role of facts and analysis in American public life – Kavanagh

Jin Jun | 2 comments Hi, Everyone! Just wanted to suggest Educated as one of the possible books for our book club. It's an easy and interesting read. Also, if you are looking for a movie suggestion, I highly recommend Three Identical Strangers! Happy Reading!

Eric Brandt | 1 comments I am down to read whatever! Any other considerations? We could do a doodle poll or something to decide on a book. Thoughts?
