      The Road to Character, by David Brooks1The insightful New York Times columnist2 He argues that American society does a good job of cultivating the "résumé virtues3" but not our "eulogy4 virtues" historical figures who were paragons5 Marshall was especially enlightening. Even if the distinction between the two types of virtues is not always crystal clear, The Road to Character gave me a lot to think about. It is a thought-provoking look at what it means to live life well. Stuff in Simple Words, by Randall MunroeIt is a brilliant concept, if you can't explain something simply, you don't really understand it. Munroe, who worked on robotics at NASA, is an ideal person to take it on. The book is filled with helpful explanations and drawings of everything from a dishwasher to a nuclear power plant. And Munroe's jokes are laugh-out- minds.Being Nixon: A Man Divided, by Evan ThomasI wouldn't call it a sympathetic portrait -- in many ways, Nixon was a deeply unsympathetic person -- on Nixon's presidency6, Thomas takes a cradle-to-the-grave approach and gives you sharp insights into the inner workings of a brilliant, flawed, and conflicted man. Materials With Both Eyes Open, by Julian M. Allwood, Jonathan M. Cullen, et alAlthough the topic can be dry as a desert, and clever analogies without sacrificing clarity or rigor7. I learned a lot from this thoughtful look at a critical topic.Eradication8: Ridding the World of Diseases Forever?, by Nancy Leys StepanStepan's history of eradication efforts gives you a good sense of how involved the work can get,, and how much we've learned from our failures. She writes in a fairly academic style that may make it hard for non-experts to get to her valuable arguments, the lessons of the past to guide future efforts to save lives.Mindset: The New Psychology9, by Carol S. DweckThrough clever research studies and engaging writing, Dweck illuminates10 how our beliefs about our capabilities11 influence on how we learn and which paths we take i who want to cultivate talent and for parents who want to raise their kids to thrive on challenge.The Vital Question, by Nick LaneWhen I interviewed him back during his Microsoft years, of technology. Today, he's like the mentor12-- for success, so it's refreshing13 to see an icon14 of entrepreneurship who no longer needs to posture15 or preen16 but instead wants to share, wisely and well, what he's acquired and learned.
