Selection: L.A. Confidential and Frankenstein
"I have a special affection for the books comprising James Ellroy’s “L.A. Quartet” especially L.A. Confidential. Ellroy’s books inspired me to pursue an academic project on the Los Angeles Police Department. I read Frankenstein for the first time after my junior year in college. I always felt compelled by Shelley’s warnings of the dangers of technological machination but also by the questions the book raises concerning what it means to be human."

Selection: Financial Markets & Corporate Strategy by Mark Grinblatt and Sheridan Titman
"This book takes a unique approach to introducing issues in corporate finance and financial markets in general. It goes beyond standard textbook materials by incorporating recent financial and economic literature on related topics, allowing readers to have a better understanding of the complexity of financial decisions and think more broadly about their potential impacts on investor and firm behaviors. I have always enjoyed this insightful book ever since I was studying for a PhD in finance many years ago."
