My Library

My favorite books that teach something on global innovation and entrepreneurship

Over the last three years, I’ve shared various recommendations on books and blogs. Here are the highlights.

Sea People: The Puzzle of Polynesia

I read Sea People: The Puzzle of Polynesia which explores the mystery (review) of how Polynesia was populated.

Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education.

I am a longtime fan of Michael Pollan. This month, I picked up one of his older books: Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education.

Leonardo Da Vinci

Leonardo Da Vinci is considered perhaps one of the greatest geniuses of all time. I have enjoyed reading his biography by Walter Isaacson.

The Shadow of the Sun

The Shadow of the Sun, by Ryszard Kapuscinski, is unequivocally one of my favorite books on Africa, charting the modern history across the continent.

The Gene: An Intimate History

I read “The Gene: An Intimate History” by Siddhartha Mukherjee, a compelling read on the history of humanity’s knowledge of the gene, and ultimately of ourselves.
