Famous Books by Famous Authors

In every field or profession there are some books, articles or authors you just gotta know about.

Every so often the Curmudgeon will actually read a book that is hot off the presses and that got some good reviews or the author is well known and respected in our field. For each of these must read books, we will take time to summarize some of its key findings, critique its recommendations or analysis, and place the book in some sort of theoretical context. Reading the review allows the time-pressed economic developer to target which books to read and when she/he read these books he/she has a framework and a perspective with which to make some judgements.

And if you don’t get to the book right away, our review will give you enough info that, just maybe, somebody else might think you actually read the book.
