18 Eclectic Book Lists For Summer 2018

One of my  summer highlights is to curate summer/beach reading lists from a variety of sources.

This type of reading has a long and honorable history and can even lead to great things. For instance, Lin-Manuel Miranda read Ron Chernow’s biography Alexander Hamilton on vacation, providing the inspiration for the Broadway mega-hit Hamilton, as detailed in the Playbill.com article, “Beach Read to Broadway! How Lin-Manuel Miranda Turned a History Book into Hamilton.”

Living and Working in 30 Different Economies: A Curated Resource List

It’s become fashionable in recent years to decree that we are living in different ‘economies,’: The Gig Economy, The Sharing Economy and many others. In that spirit, what follows is my curated list of 30 different economies, with one selected resource for each. There is overlap on some of these concepts, and if there are ones that I’ve missed, please let me know.
