Good read. Assembling and creating and working and growing within a band is not dissimilar to assembling a founding team for a start-up business. Lessons in here for entrepreneurs. #Rolling Stones

oh yes!

Mark Hampton on Decorating. This book was part of my baseline education on interior design.

Truman - David McCullough. Have read the book and listened to audio version more than once and just may have been known to put this on in the background while my kids are working on projects. McCullough's voice is great for sharing the story of the man from Independence.

Have purchased this for friends, clients and cohorts...

A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan I wish I could write this well. The chapter written as a powerpoint presentation has stayed with me months later (heads up - I was told to read this novel in actual book vs. e-book form because of this chapter and it was good counsel.)

Stories I Only Tell My Friends Would not have picked this up, but after being prompted to do so by three dissimilar friends (who don't know each other!) found myself cruising through it. A smooth and very human read.

The Fates Will Find Their Way -Hannah Pittard

"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one...just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had." - F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby, Ch. 1 When I was in school, I kicked off every summer vacation by rereading this book. It may be time to restart that tradition and I am curious what my take away will be this time...

Sweeping account of a certain time in NYC and kick-*ss. Just like Patti!

The Ground Beneath Her Feet by Salman Rushdie. Just once in my life I would like to be able to write a paragraph as well as Rushdie. There are descriptions with "staying power" in this book that imprint themselves upon your brain, coming to mind months, seasons, years later.

'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee It awes me. Still.
