Outlier14 Jan

Outlier; Malcolm Gladwell

Summary – Why some people succeed — it has to do with luck and opportunities as well as talent — from the author of “Blink” and “The Tipping Point.”

Comments – After enjoying Mr. Gladwell’s last two books, I’ve put this one on my list. Should I keep it on the list?

The Rise of The Creative Class14 Jan

The Rise of The Creative Class…and how it’s transforming work, leisure, community & everyday life; Richard Florida

Summary – Millions of Americans are beginning to work and live the way creative people like artists and scientists always have – and as a result our values and tastes, our personal relationships, our choices of where to live, and even our sense and use of time are changing. Richard Florida chronicles the ongoing change in people’s choices and attitudes and describes a society in which the creative ethos is increasingly dominant.

Comments – Hoping this book validates the benefits of increasing investment in the arts (supporting my passions for sustainability, CSR and non-profit board work). Does it? Also have The Flight of the Creative Class in the pile.
