February Book Recommendations

February Book Recommendations

Below are a few books recommended by your colleagues. The reviews themselves are plucked directly from them – they’re in their own words and style. Enjoy!

“Open” by Andre Agassi
My book recommendation is Open by Andre Agassi. The book takes you through Agassi's tennis upbringing to his current involvement with tennis. I learned a lot about him and tennis in this book. If someone likes tennis or a good story about a sport, it is an easy and interesting read. It's also inspiring from the perspective that someone can become a champion with very little money, but a lot of drive, dedication and business acumen!
Anna Masters, adjunct faculty, Communications Division

“At Home: A Short History of Private Life” by Bill Bryson
The book I'm reading is At Home: A Short History of Private Life by Bill Bryson. It is the detailed background history, anecdotes and social registry of every single nook and cranny in his old English house, researched to include fascinating facts about the evolution of domestic living through the centuries. Did you know that in the 18th century putting a table and chairs in the middle of a dining room was as odd as putting a chest of drawers in the middle of a dining room now?
