City Journal editor Brian Anderson joins Vanessa Mendoza, executive vice president of the Manhattan Institute, to discuss Brian’s summer and vacation reading list.
Summer is traditionally a time when Americans can catch up on books that they’ve been meaning to read (or reread). We asked Brian to talk about what books are on his list this year, how he decides what to read, and more.
Check out Brian’s summer reading list, in the order discussed:
- The Masque of Africa: Glimpses of African Belief, by V.S. Naipaul.
- Leo Strauss on Political Philosophy: Responding to the Challenge of Positivism and Historicism, edited by Catherine H. Zuckert
- Invested: How Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger Taught Me to Master My Mind, My Emotions, and My Money (with a Little Help from My Dad), by Danielle and Phil Town
- Aristotle’s Way: How Ancient Wisdom Can Change Your Life, by Edith Hall
- Room to Dream, by David Lynch and Kristine McKenna
- Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, by Greg McKeown
