It is amazing how many great books are out there and how helpful it is to hear from someone why a recent book is worth reading.

A few years back there was a staff member at Dalat who would come up to me from time to time and ask, “So what are you reading now?” This lead to a discussion about books I had read recently but also books that he would encourage me to read. I enjoyed these conversations. For that reason, every once in a while, I too started to ask colleagues and friends to tell me about any books they had read recently.

It is amazing how many great books are out there and how helpful it is to hear from someone why a recent book is worth reading. So in today’s Dalat News I thought I would list the books that I have recently read and would recommend to people. If you click on the title of the book, it will take you to Amazon.com where you can read a brief description and several readers’ opinions. My hope is that maybe out of this list there might be one that you decide to pick up and read. When you do, you will be ready to answer the question “So what are you reading now?”

• Indistractable (Nir Eyal)
• The Pandemic Population (Tim Elmore)
• The 5 Second Rule (Mel Robbins)
• Factfulness (Hans Rosling)
• Smarter Faster Better (Charles Duhigg)
• Digital Minimalism (Cal Newport)
• Creating Innovators (Tony Wagner)

If you have read a great book recently, let me know. It may show up on one of my future lists.
