Blink is another one of Adam's Favorite books
Malcome Gladwell always gets you thinking.

Fascinating book on why we just "know things" and where those reflex actions come from.
Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking By Malcolm Gladwell (Part 2 in a great 3 book series.)
If you like sports or you like business - this book is for you. It's a great story about the Oakland A's and how they used statistical methods to pick players rather than simply going on what others thought classified a strong athlete. A great success story!

Posh to those who say the right brain/ left brain theory isn't relevant
I lead a book club with my career development colleagues at Elon and we really enjoyed this book. Great insights on thinking right-brain. This book gave me a lot of ideas for career programming.
Daniel Pink book

Very interesting read about how to develop your right brain aptitudes and why you MUST.

What Gladwell refers to as sociological epidemics can start out as simple ideas or products that end up making a huge splash, changing everything from how we think to what we think we know.

A powerful read, Friedman believes that our future is in big trouble if we do not start making smarter choices. He explores the many ways that our world is depleting our natural resources and causing a global meltdown, and he pleads to America to be the leaders of change for the environment.

Always enjoy visionary minds.
I recently began reading this book for class and so far, I like the way Friedman delivers his argument without preaching at me and how he leaves room for error and new data. He seems to understand that no one knows what will happen for sure since humans haven't before existed on the planet with CO2 levels as high as they are... I also like the way he connects the economy and nature and briefly but concisely described how the economy went it the pooper. A very interesting, easy read. (so far)
Hot, Flat and Crowded by Thomas Friedman provides a sobering outlook and lays out an inspiring future.

Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience Mihaly Csikszentmihaly A really interesting book based on Csikszentmihaly's numerous studies on happiness. Positive psychology is something I find particularly fascinating and this was a fairly well written introduction to the concept of "Flow"- not a guide or self-help book by any means, but definitely worth reading.

Gladwell explores what makes high-achievers different through numerous stories of society's "outliers."
greatness = 10000+ h
Take it from Author Dan Roam: "There is no more powerful way to prove that we know something well than to draw a simple picture of it. And there is no more powerful way to see hidden solutions than to pick up a pen and draw out the pieces of our problem."
