R.J. Julia Booksellers Founder Roxanne J. Coady has noticed an increase of customers coming into the store looking for business books, most asking for books that explain the economic crisis and put it in context. She has picked four books from the year and one oldie but goody to do just that. They are:
  • The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life by Alice Schroeder, Bantam
  • The Art of Strategy: A Game Theorist's Guide to Success in Business and Life by Avinash K. Dixit & Barry J. Nalebuff, W.W. Norton
  • Panic!: The Story of Modern Financial Insanity edited By Michael Lewis, Portfolio
  • The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World by Niall Ferguson, Penguin Press
  • The Great Crash: 1929 by John Kenneth Galbraith, Mariner Books
  • If you'd like to see what she has to say for the books, head over to the original post. If you're anywhere near Madison, Connecticut, head over to her store and buy one of these fine books. If you live near us here in Milwaukee, you can get them at the finest independent bookstore in town, our sister-company Harry W. Schwartz.
