Business

The Richest Man in Babylon (Unabridged) by George S. Clason - Anthony, Design

What’s is about?

The Richest Man in Babylon dispenses financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon. These famous "Babylonian parables" offer an understanding of and solution to a lifetime's worth of personal financial problems. The book holds the secrets to acquiring money, keeping money, and earning more money.

Why Anthony's into it?

“I enjoy any chance I can get to learn about the finance world. It’s great because it’s a combination of actual self-help and ways to improve knowledge but set in a stage of storytelling.”

Fiction

Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke - Jennifer, Project Management

What’s it about?

Are you looking for a classic Sci-Fi novel? This original alien invasion isn’t nearly as intense as War of the Worlds. In fact, it’s about a peaceful alien invasion that turns earth into a utopia of sorts, but perhaps at the cost of human culture. If you want some subtle chills, add this to your reading list.

Why Jennifer's into it?

“I liked the book because I thought it was an interesting commentary about humanity and society as a whole.”

Comedy

People I Want To Punch In The Throat by Jen Mann - Colin, Search

What’s it about?

This is a collection of essays ranging from marriage, suburban life and everything in between. The author is often known for speaking her mind, and sometimes getting in trouble for it. The book promises entertainment, so if you’re looking for a laugh or a way to validate what you’re doing in life, this is the book for you.

Why Colin’s into it?

“I’m not normally super into reading books, but this caught my attention because it’s funny and relates to real life.” 

Non-Fiction

Man's Search for Meaning by Victor Frankel - Nathan, Search

What’s it about?

The author of this book survived the Holocaust and became a psychiatrist. In this book, he takes his suffering along with the suffering of people that he’s treated and makes a point that a person can not avoid suffering in life, but you can cope with it. He states you can find meaning in the pain, and use it to find “renewed purpose.”

Why Nathan's into it?

“I think It's a great book for anyone searching for meaning in their life. The author survived the horrors of the Holocaust and provides some powerful advice for people having a crisis of meaning.”
