Dear Colleagues,

At the September meeting of Baruch’s faculty senate, a suggestion was advanced that the college organize a faculty book club. From 2007-2010 we had such a club, which was much lauded by participants:  http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/facultyhandbook/bookclub2006.htm

Among the suggestions that have come my way for texts are the two below, with links to reviews:

Geoge Anders, You Can Do Anything: The Surprising Power of a “Useless” Liberal Arts Education

The New York Times Book Review – Timothy Aubry (associate professor of English, Baruch College)

 

Duff McDonald, The Golden Passport:  Harvard Business School, the Limits of Capitalism, and the Moral Failure of the MBA Elite

 

The provost’s office would love to receive further suggestions: please send suggestions to Vanessa Cano by noon on Friday, September 22: Vanessa.Cano@baruch.cuny.edu

Soon thereafter, I’ll circulate a list of the books you’ve all named and ask you to vote for the one you think would lead to the most fruitful duscussions (or perhaps rank the top three).

 

Happy reading,

Dennis
