2022 Summer Reading List

SUMMER STARTS TODAY!!! Let’s kick it off with a vacation-worthy reading list!

Whether you’re headed for the beach, the mountains, or a nearby couch, these books will be excellent additions to your collection!

Here is what our team will be reading this summer…

– “The Next Shift: The Fall of Industry and the Rise of Health Care in Rust Belt America” by Gabriel Winant: The Next Shift offers unique insights into how we got here and what could happen next. If health care employees, along with other essential workers, can translate the increasing recognition of their economic value into political power, they may become a major force in the twenty-first century.

– “Sea of Tranquility” by Emily St. John Mandel: A mind-bending story of time travel and metaphysics that precisely captures the reality of our current moment.

– “Watergate: A New History” by Garrett M. Graff: This definitive history of Watergate is a worthwhile read for both history buffs and those with only passing familiarity with the Nixon White House.  Among the most interesting revelations, Graff makes clear decades after the burglary and cover-up were the management foibles and lack of a clear strategy that undermined the presidency.

– “Freezing Order: A True Story of Money Laundering, Murder, and Surviving Vladimir Putin’s Wrath” by Bill Browder: This gripping thriller is a stirring morality tale about how one man can take on one of the most ruthless villains in the world—and win.

– “The Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed and Fail” by Ray Dalio: The Changing World Order puts into perspective the cycles and forces that have driven the successes and failures of all the world’s major countries throughout history. Dalio reveals the timeless and universal dynamics that were behind these shifts, while also offering practical principles for policymakers, business leaders, investors, and others operating in this environment.

– “Undaunted Courage” by Stephen Ambrose: The fascinating real-life-adventure-story of the first government-backed exploration of the west in 1803. Lewis and Clark’s journey from the mouth of the Missouri to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, and ultimately to the west coast, is a tale of perseverance and triumph and perfect for a summer vacation read.

– “iGen: Why Today’s Super-Connected Kids are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy – and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood” by Jean Twenge: It’s very clear that the future generations will not tolerate the lack of user interface and interconnectivity in today’s healthcare system. Some would rather not interact with the healthcare system than deal with its arcane processes.
