10 books for thinking and connecting in 2021

It's that time of year where everyone posts their best reads from the past year. I thought I'd take a slightly different approach and post the books I'm going to read in 2021 (or read again).

I've chosen these books because I would like to be challenged and stretched in my thinking and continue to explore how we embrace better ways of thinking, being and living with equity and kindness in a complex world.

  1. Thinking in Systems: A Primer - Donella H Meadows

  2. Get together - Bailey Richardson

  3. Deep Work - Cal Newport

  4. Deficit Myth - Stephanie Kelton

  5. Provocations - Camille Paglia

  6. Right Brain Workout - Russell Howcroft and Alex Wadelton

  7. Think Smarter - Michael Kallet

  8. Why Not? - Barry Nalebuff and Ian Ayres

  9. How to have impossible conversations - Peter Boghossian & James Lindsay

  10. 12 Rules for Life - Jordan Peterson

Got any to add that you think are a must read?
