Summer Reading

« Ed Glaeser, Environmentalist | Main | Urban Energy »

Penelope With Memorial Day and the summer reading season hot upon us, I recommend new books by two of my favorite bloggers which dig into the BIG question of how to manage your career in the creative age.

Penelope Trunk's, Brazen Careerist: The New Rules for Success, is a terrific guide to managing your career in today's horizontal labor market. I devoured it in an afternoon and passed it along to my wife Rana and David Miller who runs Creative Class Strategies to read.  Check out Guy Kawasaki's interview with Penelope.

Ben Ben Casnocha's, My Start-up Life. Ben is a 19 year old blogger-entrepreneur-wunderkind. And, his book, as the subtitle says, chronicles, "What a (Very) Young CEO Learned on His Journey Through Silicon Valley."  Here's an excerpt.
