Kate, Production

“I think 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School (by Matthew Fredrick) is always a winner.  It’s a small and pleasing package, approachable, and interesting.”



Jane, Acquisitions

Something for Nothing by Michael Klein is an entertaining novel that anyone can read—it focuses on the life of a recently minted PhD in economics. The protagonist, David Fox is struggling to figure out his professional life: teaching, researching, publishing, and managing university office politics.  And there are some neat little economics lessons woven in there.” 




Bill, Director of Technology

City Cycling (by John Pucher and Ralph Buehler)—a great resource for folks who are thinking about biking more regularly or for experienced cyclists looking for more insight.”
