COMPILING MY CHRISTMAS BOOK LIST



It is that time of the year again.

Relatives and friends are asking me for my book wish list for Christmas. There is not a heck of a lot that I need, or what, so books (or gift cards) are the ideal present for me.

My birthday was in October, so a lot of what I wanted to read was given to me at that time.

There are only a few titles out there that I have been wanting.

On the top of my wish list is a book that I have had some difficulty acquiring. It is a new release entitled “The Permanent Campaign: New Media, New Politics" by Dr. Greg Elmer, F. McKelvey and G. Langlois.  It investigates and analyzes the campaign organizations of Canadian political parties.

Another book that I would love to delve into over the holidays is The Victory Lab by. Sasha Issenberg

The only other thing out there that I have seen that has perked my interest is The Power Of Why by Amanda Lang. I am a big Malcom Gladwell fan and this book looks similar to his style. It examines why are some people able to get so much more done in so much less time than others? Why do some companies flourish in tough times while others fail? Why are some countries more productive than others?

As well, I have to have Jean Claude Roy’s  Fluctuat Nec Mergitur. The book is Roy’s journal of paintings of nearly every community in the province. Each painting is the story of a community on the day he painted it on site.

So, how would you like to help me with a few suggestions?

Have you read anything this year that you think I might
