"Black Edge" is the kind of book that simultaneously satisfies and confounds the reader. I was fascinated by the complex network of events that led up to the arrests of numerous greedy, cheating hedge fund traders after a ten-year joint SEC/FBI investigation. It was, however, a grievous blow to realize that many of the subsequent convictions have since been vacated and the targets of the investigation freed. And in the end, the primary target, Steven A. Cohen, suffered only monetary penalties. An eye-opening read for certain! ~ Reviewed by Shirley Cagle

Whiplash: How to Survive Our Faster Future Cover Image

Published: Grand Central Publishing - December 6th, 2016

This is a fascinating and timely exploration of the world today. How do we deal with the incredible (and increasing) pace of change? The relentless advance of technology? Ito and Howe are involved in the MIT Media Lab, an interdisciplinary group of MIT professors and other smart folks who are involved in creating our future. While the book is a little too MIT Media Lab heavy - meaning, not drawing from other places enough - it is a great read for anyone grappling with how to adapt and thrive in the new world that is evolving. They present nine themes, for instance, Resilience over Strength, that they believe will better serve us going forward. Well worth the time! ~ Reviewed by Chris Morrow

Third base was a cold, comfortless cocoon for Collins, whose inherited wealth brought him material splendor but social and emotional sterility. Involvement with individuals, groups, and organizations with financial needs allowed Collins to shed his moneyed isolation, and learn personal wealth appreciates where money can't be found. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
