The Future Is Faster Than You Think by @PeterDiamandis and @steven_kotlerExplains why our potential is unlocked by convergence. Understand transformation and the opportunities @USArmy has in the future. #21stCenturyCSAReadingListOctober 15th – The Social DilemmaThe @USArmy must build cohesive teams. I am recommending the social dilemma to understand the impact of smart devices on how people communicate and connect in the Information Age. It can be watched on Netflix currently. #21stCenturyCSAReadingListSeptember 15th – The Talent Code: Greatness Isn't Born. It's Grown. Here's How. by Daniel CoyleTo master a craft you need "deep practice," passion and master coaching. This is how people across the @USArmy must think and act so we all become Masters of our Profession. #21stCenturyCSAReadingListAugust 15th – Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging by Sebastian JungerTribe by Sebastian Junger has always given me good insights to the power of cohesion and belonging. Forging emotional connections with people to unite them in strong teams is vital. #ThisIsMySquadJuly 15th – Art of War by Sun TzuJuly’s classic title is Art of War. Sun Tzu would understand that Great Power Competition doesn’t have to mean great power conflict. To Sun Tzu, "the supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting." #21stCenturyCSAReadingList #WinningMattersJuly 15th – Like War: The Weaponization of Social Media by P.W. Singer and Emerson T. BrookingJuly’s contemporary title is P.W. Singer & Emerson T. Brooking's #LikeWar. We live in the information age and we all must understand the power of social media and its impacts. #21stCenturyCSAReadingListJune 15th – Fighting Talk: Forty Maxims on War, Peace, and Strategy by Colin GrayFor a classic, I want to pay tribute to a legend whom we lost earlier this year: Colin Gray. I encourage strategic thinkers of all ranks and specialties to read his 2009 Fighting Talk: 40 Maxims on War, Peace, and Strategy. #21stCenturyCSAReadingListJune 15th – The Infinite Game Simon SinekFor a contemporary title, I recommend Simon Sinek’s The Infinite Game. Great power competition doesn’t end. Today’s conflicts don’t end with treaty signings on battleships. It's important to play the long game & define what winning means. #WinningMatters #21stCenturyCSAReadingListMay 15th – Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World by David EpsteinCSA 35 personally recommended David Epstein’s Range to me. I really enjoyed this book, because it reminds us that a broad range of interests gives us the flexibility to win in today’s complex environments. #WinningMattersMay 15th – Once An Eagle by Anton MyrerThis book is a classic. Its lessons are timeless and have left a deep impression on me throughout my career. We should all strive to be Sam Damon. Put #PeopleFirst and everything else will follow.
