Big Vape: The Incendiary Rise of Juul – to be released June 8, 2021
One of my favorite business genres is narrative non-fiction. If you liked Bad Blood or American Kingpin, this could be another great read where’ we’re also being educated about the destructive epidemic of vaping which I know very little about.
Scale at Speed – to be released June 10, 2021
I normally do not pre-order books from authors I know little about. I’m making an exception for Felix Verlarde. I’m already a huge David C. Baker fan of the 2Bobs podcast and his own book. David works with creative agencies around the globe, so my acumen for this industry is high, the one Felix Works in. I find his 2Y3X framework fascinating and impactful. I hope the book doesn’t disappoint.
Miseducated: A Memoir – to be released June 15, 2021
I’ve not listened to any interviews with the author, but I’m already curious if this will have some similarities to Westover’s Educated, one of the best books I’ve read in years. I have not pre-ordered it yet, but I will be searching for some interviews to see if this is a book that I want to dig into.
My Life in Full: Work, Family, and Our Future – to be released September 28, 2021
