Here is a list of the books that I would review today if I’d finished any of them. They’re all on my overly-ambitious summer professional reading list. I got them from the library but have only been able to crack two. Recommendations came from Andy Goodman and Katya Andresen at Network for Good.
I’ve managed to read the first 100 pages of this one. It’s popular neuroscience – summarizing all kinds of experiments and the reasons for human reactions. In a work context, it helps to think about setting up the right incentives for people to join in for success.
The first 8 pages are incredible. But not as incredible as Lehrer’s first 8 pages. This book is apparently about influencing people to make decisions you want them to make. Or it may be about large elephants and smaller elephants.
Apparently, we nonprofit folk have something to learn from the Hollywood screenwriting game. That’s what Katya says, anyway.
Sounds awesome, doesn’t it?
