Up In The Old Hotel by Joseph Mitchell
After reading Man In Profile, the biography of Joseph Mitchell by Thomas Kunkel, it has made me want to read any and everything by Mr. Mitchell. I absolutely love his interest in everyday, ordinary people.
Bowling Alone by Robert D. Putnam
Mr. Putnam stimulated me in attempting to understand what is truly causing some of our social woes and I wanted to understand from his point of view why people are so disinterested in service to our communities in areas such as P.T.A., civic projects as well as government service.
The Halo Effect by Philip Rosenweig
These next two books intrigued me because they were recommended by Michael Mauboussin due to my interest in behavioral economics as well as understanding mental models in the areas of investing and decision making.
The Winner’s Curse by Richard H. Thaler
After reading Misbehaving by Mr. Thaler, as I stated above, I want to understand behavioral economics better and also understand why we do what we do in decision making and what causes us to make the decisions that we make.
