1) The Rainman’s Third Cure: An Irregular Education by Peter Coyote

(creative nonfiction/memoir)
Coyote’s interview on Forum with Michael Krasny compelled me to get his book.

2) Getting More: How You Can Negotiate to Succeed in Work and Life by Stuart Diamond

I was trained in the win-win and BATNA approaches. Prof. Diamond, in a nutshell, teaches a more compassionate, empathic approach to business negotiation.

3) Ghost Month by Ed Lin

Ed Lin is a Taiwanese American writer who I’ve been following since his debut novel. His most recent work is definitely on my must-read list.

4) Crevasse by Nicholas Wong

A synchronous chance meeting and now Wong’s collection of poetry is on my summer reading list. I can’t wait to get to this one.

5) The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo

We all could use a little de-cluttering.
