We asked some of our industry greats what they have on their summer reading lists. Here’s what they had to say.

Nomi Bergman
Senior Executive

“A couple of recent ones, that I just read, or am reading: ‘Post Corona’ by Scott Galloway: This was an entertaining and illuminating book! Scott has a brilliant mixture of skepticism
and rational optimism for the future. I especially loved reading the sections on Amazon and Higher Education. ‘Breath’ by James Nestor: Like so many others, during the pandemic, I took time to think about how I could improve my health and wellness. This was a surprisingly brisk book to read, and it was packed with actionable insights. ‘Cutting the Cord: The Cell Phone Has Transformed Humanity’ by Marty Cooper and ‘On the Road Less Traveled: An Unlikely Journey from the Orphanage to the Boardroom’ by Ed Hajim: These are inspiring 2020 auto-biographies, from two remarkable men
I deeply admire.“

Princell Hair
President & CEO

“I’m currently reading ‘Measure What Matters’ by John Doerr, which was recommended by a friend as I had just finished ‘The Devil You Know’ by Charles Blow. ‘Measure What Matters’ speaks to using objectives and key results (OKRs) to drive change, make tough decisions and stay nimble. It was written with startups and emerging businesses in mind.“

Brian Lamb
Founder, Director
C-SPAN (Host of Booknotes+ Podcast)

“King Richard: Nixon and Watergate – An American Tragedy” by Michael Dobbs
“Zero Fail: The Rise and Fall of the Secret Service” by Carol D. Leonnig
“Inside U.S.A.” by John Gunther

“The first two are brand new books. I’m reading them because I lived through them. The Gunther book is from 1947; 1000+ pages looking at the U.S. when there were 130 million residents. It is in the tradition of de Tocqueville.“
