While The Atlantic recently reported the Decline of the American Book Lover, summer is still an excellent time to reap some of the health and happiness benefits of reading. From mysteries by our own Chris Knopf to rediscovering the classics, we reached out to Mintz + Hoke team members to tell us what they’re reading this summer and why.
We’re also sharing the first audio chapter of Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchmen (via @fastcompany).
Ready to go? Here are a few picks to consider. Please share your reviews.
“Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t by Simon Sinek. I am always interested in better ways to lead and learning from those who have done it well.”
Ron Perine, President
“Partly because it’s an adventure tale and also because it’s a fast-paced break, I’m reading Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed. Once I’m done return to nonfiction reality.”
Kara Mitchell, Senior Vice President Client Service
“Every summer I take family to visit my family in London. I’ll bring the requisite catch-up business reading – latest cool bio, anything from Harvard Business Review, etc. It provides cover for my perennial summer favorite – Daniel Silva’s latest spy thriller, The English Spy, featuring his terrific character, Gabriele Allon. I live vicariously for two weeks touring around and saving the world. Then I read the business stuff during the plane ride home.”
Andrew Wood, Senior Vice President Strategy
