Each month in our newsletter, The Keen Thinker, we include a section on music recommendations called "What We're Listening to...(and you should be too)." What is a business book seller doing recommending music? The pre-business-book-expert Jack owned a record store, and even though Jack changed careers long ago, it's no surprise that music--both listening to it and making it--is an important part of our office culture. Most of the staff here are music connoisseurs, so you'll quickly note that our recommendations aren't of the usual Top 40 or Adult Contemporary vibe. Ultimately, we wanted to give you a peak at what we're listening to so that you can both get to know us better, but also so you can learn about some interesting new music to listen to while at work. This month: Jack recommends: Jamey Johnson Jon recommends: Hildur Gunadttir Carol recommends: Gram Parsons Roy recommends: Angelo Badalamenti Sally recommends: Mumford & Sons Aaron recommends: The Rachels, The Felice Brothers, Barn Owl Dylan recommends: CocoRosie We'd love to hear what you listen to at work too. Feel free to add them to comments. To see our recommendations each month--and to learn about the newest and best in business books--make sure you sign up for The Keen Thinker to be delivered to your inbox by visiting our home page and scrolling down until you see mention of The Keen Thinker.
