LOONSHOTS: How to Nurture the Crazy Ideas That Win Wars, Cure Diseases, and Transform Industries by Safi Bahcall
“Physicist and biotechnology entrepreneur Bahcall examines how companies, and even countries, can encourage ‘loonshots,’ which he defines as crazy ideas that are panned by critics but can become wild successes if nurtured…. This thorough, fascinating study will appeal to a broader audience than just business wonks.”–Booklist

FAR COUNTRY: Scenes from American Culture by Franco Moretti
“‘Short in pages, and compressed in style,’ according to the author, this smart collection from Moretti…takes five introductory lectures on literary history out of the classroom…. Learned without being difficult or jargony, Moretti proves that criticism can be both thought provoking and fun.”–Publishers Weekly
