Over the years I have managed to get through a number of very interesting books that have helped open my mind and sharpen my research focus. The books are likely to fall into one of two categories: one, a book that demonstrates an “out of the box” theme, or two a book that provides meaningful insight into an important or series of important events. I have not restricted my reading to just finance and economics as I am believer in a interdisciplinary approach. A great example of this is the lesson that one learns from reading Michael Lewis’s Moneyball.
While on Michael Lewis, I have not added any of his books to my list for the simple reason that they are all complusory reading.
I am have broken my reading list into an economics and finanace, and an other ‘list’. I do not provide a detailed review of each book but rather provide a 20 second elevator pitch as to why I think you should read the book, and what I got out of it.
The link for economics and finance list is here.
