Yes, it was a big and fun day for book lovers.

Today on Think, hosted by Krys Boyd, I was one of three guests invited to discuss our favorite books of the year. I was the “business book” guy on the panel, and the other two guests, Michael Merschel, Books Editor for the Dallas Morning News, and Joy Tipping, a book reviewer for the Dallas Morning News, discussed a much wider array of genres and authors.

It was a fun hour. And, though I read few novels, I came away with a list of authors to check out.

Blood AcesBy the way, they all absolutely raved about Blood Aces: The Wild Ride of Benny Binion, the Texas Gangster Who Created Vegas Poker by Doug Swanson. I’ve just grabbed the sample pages for my Kindle app.

Michael and I both commented on the newest book by Walter Isaacson, The Innovators. And I talked briefly about Willful Blindness: Why We ignore the Obvious at our Peril by Margaret Heffernan as the most important business book I presented in 2014. (Her book was actually published in 2011, so I was a little “late” on this).The Innovators

And, by the way, though Michael and Joy read many books a year, and I read quite a few myself, I’ve got a hunch that Krys beats us all. She is a well-read, engaging font of knowledge. If you have not listened in, check our her Think broadcast, noon-2:00 Monday through Thursday. Go to 90.1 in the Dallas area, or click here to go to her site. (Live streaming is available).

Willful BlindnessI could not keep up with all of their book and author recommendations. (I took good notes). There were books a-plenty to keep you engaged and enthralled. So, I encourage you to listen to the program. Click on this link to listen, or to download the podcast.
