What I've been reading lately

Following the advice of Charlie Munger, I've been broadening my reading list recently to include additional disciplines.  Specifically, leadership, in industries entirely outside of medicine: submarining, manufacturing, DevOps and software testing.  Here is a brief list of what I have been reading/am currently reading.  What I can tell you is that mixing in lessons from disciplines has rapidly accelerated my thinking in my own field-- Primary Care innovation.  So what in doubt, go read something else!

Also, if you don't have a library card-- get one!

  1. Turn the Ship Around, by L. David Marquet
  2. The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement, by Eliyahu Goldratt
  3. The Phoenix Project, by Gene Kim et al
  4. Sense & Respond, by Gothelf & Seiden
  5. Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time, by Sutherland and Sutherland
And of course, some of the more useful books over the past few years:
  1. Antifragile, by Nassim Nicholas Taleb 
  2. Tribal Leadership, by Logan et al
  3. Leaderhip & Self-Deception, by The Arbinger Institute (Institutes can write now?)
  4. Drive, by Daniel Pink
  5. Give & Take, by Adam Grant
  6. Rework, by Fried & DHH
  7. How Stella Saved the Farm by Vijay Govindarajan and Chris Trimble
Enjoy!  Happy to start reviewing any of these if there is interest.  Until then, read some amazingly in depth book reviews by John Norman over at 7fff
