Holiday Reading List

Posted by Scott Heydt on Friday, December 27, 2013 Under: Recommended Reads
RefinED Friends,

I sit here, foot propped in the air, after a minor surgical procedure performed on Christmas Eve.  All this forced couch time gives me ample opportunity to build my reading list.  I'll keep today's blog post short and sweet. Here are some books I'll devour over the next few weeks.  

1.  Focus:  The Hidden Driver of Excellence  Daniel Goleman   (already devoured, and highly recommend it!)

2.  Boys Adrift:  The Five Factors Driving the Growing Epidemic of Unmotivated Boys and Underachieving Young Men   Leonard Sax

Girls on the Edge:  The Four Factors Driving the New Crisis for Girls: Sexual Identity, Cyberbubble, Obsessions, and Environmental Toxins   Leonard Sax

4.  Masterminds and Wingmen:  Helping Our Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World   Rosalind Wiseman   

Youth Voices Project-  Stan Davis & Charisse Nixon

Whistling Vivaldi and Other Clues How Stereotypes Affect Us-  Claude Steele

And on the fiction side:

7.  Everything Matters!  Ron Curie, Jr.

I invite additional recommendations.  Enjoy your weekend!
