Bloomberg did an interesting thing with their Best Books of 2012 — they surveyed lots of people, and published all of the suggestions.
My book suggestions were wedged between Olli Rehn, European Union Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner and Stephen Roach, senior lecturer at Yale University and former chewif economist for Morgan Stanley.
The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood by James Gleick is a tour de force of history and an introduction to information theory for nonscientists. Only rarely does it get a little lost in the weeds. I found it a deeply satisfying read.
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman, which I read in February on vacation.
Wait: The Art and Science of Delay by Frank Partnoy was a fun summer read.
