Current reading

These are two books that have just finished.

I highly recommend Doris Kearns Goodwin’s book Leadership: In Turbulent Times. It is especially timely in these turbulent times when courageous and inspired leadership is so needed. There are so many lessons and take homes in this book. I especially liked the last four chapters where she focused on the pivotal moments in each of the four presidents (Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, & LBJ). In each of these chapters based on how they handled each of these moments she derived leadership principles.

The second book Good to Go: What the Athlete in All of Us Can Learn from the Strange Science of Recovery is a worthwhile read. The author weaves a good personal narrative looking the science and pseudoscience of recovery. She raises many good questions, the same questions that many of us have been asking for years. It will make you think differently about all the attention that has been given to recovery lately.
