My second year of serious learning is coming again to its close. Taking stock, my favorite books this year have been:
Nelson and Winter, "An Evolutionary Theory of Economic Change"
James March, "On Leadership"
And yes, surprisingly there are only 2 books, and not much to choose from. One of the reasons might be the concentration on reading papers - only preparing for my exam i read 198 papers lately, and much less books. Shamefully, it has been a very long while as well since i touched any crude or good novel. Anyway, to compensate a little, my planned summer reading list includes the following:
Viviana Zelizer, "The Social Meaning of Money"
Stuart Kauffman, "At Home in the Universe"
Duncan Watts, "Six Degrees"
Karl Weick, "Social Psychology of Organizing"
