Fall 2016 Reading List

The Upside of Irrationality: The Unexpected Benefits of Defying Logic at Work and at Home, by Dan Ariely.

The 14th Colony (Cotton Malone #11), by Steve Berry.  

Inferno, by Dan Brown. I’d read this before, but wanted to read it again before the movie came out. The book contains so much more detail than the movie can address.

Quiet Strength: the Principles, Practices, and Priorities of a Winning Life, by Tony Dungy.

Blink: the Power of Thinking Without Thinking, by Malcolm Gladwell.

The Rogue Lawyer, by John Grisham

Islands in the Stream, by Ernest Hemingway.

Michael Jordan: the Life , by Roland Lazenby. Details I’d never known before. MJ was named North Carolina’s player of the year at the age of 12 – in baseball. An all-region outfielder as a junior, but far from a MLB prospect.

The Four Loves, by CS Lewis. Read by the author.

Keep It Pithy: Useful Observations in a Tough World, by Bill O’Reilly.

Killing Patton: the Strange Death of World War II’s Most Audacious General, by Bill O’Reilly

The Closer: My Story, by Mariano Rivera. Excellent.

Iron Horse: Lou Gehrig in his Time, by Ray Robinson.

The Auschwitz Escape, by Joel C Rosenberg. I didn’t finish.

The First Hostage (JB Collins #2), by Joel C Rosenberg.

Tales From the Dugout: the Greatest True Baseball Stories Ever Told, by Mike Shannon (not the former Cardinal). Good stories, most of which I’d never heard. Not sure “greatest” is accurate.

The Innocents Abroad: Or, The New Pilgrims’ Progress, by Mark Twain. Loved it.

Hitler: A Short Biography, by A.N. Wilson.
