Another list for your reading, gift giving and collection development pleasure. This list is the Holiday Reading list from the Toronto Star Public Policy Forum, picked from individual lists in today’s print newspaper. Bizarrely, I wasn’t able to find the list online.

  • Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation by Steven Johnson
  • Unquenchable: America’s Water Crisis and What To Do About It by Robert Glennon
  • The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow
  • Carbon Shift: How Peak Oil and the Climate Crisis Will Change Canada (and Our Lives) by Thomas Homer-Dixon

I’m always looking for recommendations and notifications of book lists as they appear in various media outlets. If you see one that I haven’t covered, please let me know at jdupuis at yorku dot ca or in the comments.

I am picking up a lot of lists from Largehearted Boy.

Earlier entries in this year’s list of lists can be found here and the 2009 summary post here.

    Thanks for posting the list. During the Christmas time, favourite book lists are all I am looking for, since it is always better to hear that at least someone actually enjoyed the book that you are planning to get for your loved one 🙂 from this list, I have only read The Grand Design so far and it was a pleasure.
